Kevin and Curtis provided feedback regarding the draft publication preparation for submission to the JoB. There were several improvements recommended to further the paper down this path. 1) was to separate the technical aspects from the core content and add them to the supplementary material. 2) Add the justification for consideration to the abstract. (Video hardware provides computational resources that may by underused by biological software: Enabled by large economies of scale (lower cost) and large standardize market (rapid technological advances). 3) Add code images when referenced by text (insert jpg images) - this will be moved to the technical documentation section. 4) Add a webpage introducing the topic, the tutorials, the data, and how to use it and reproduce the results. 5) Explain the math for calculating the efficiency multiple reference in the results section of the paper in an added legend and footnotes. 6) Talk about future applications to include adaptive optics and lifetime spectral. 7) Under lessons learned, discuss the first attempt with blind porting and reduction in performance experienced when using NIO backed structures 8) Reference FluoRender and Voxx (Indiana) as GPU enabled applications an that the trend for greater use of GPUs is growing. 9) On the website, include an application description section to show the user how to use the existing code as a tool.

It was determined that would we send NVidia a copy of the published paper and thank them for the hardware support.
