Apple will exhibit at US life sciences show BioIT World in Boston next month.

The event aims to show how technology is transforming life sciences throughout all discovery and development processes. It helps life-science professionals evaluate solutions that generate, collect and analyze the flood of information being produced by the industry.

It attracts attendees from the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, healthcare, academic and government markets and runs from March 30-April 1 at the Hynes Convention Centre. Sponsors this year include HP, Sun, SGI, and Apple processor supplier IBM. Media support comes from a vast stable of life-science and discovery titles.

Apple already hosts a selection of resources for professionals from the industry. "With Mac OS X providing the power of Unix in addition to the simplicity of the Mac interface, Power Mac computers will increasingly be the world-class tools for genomic, proteomic and chemistry research," Apple says.

The company also continues to gather interest from within the scientific community following the installation of the world's third-fastest supercomputer at Virginia Tech last year.
