I'm running into some troubles with recent versions of bioinformatics/genomics codes (bowtie2 and bwa) whose maintainers have graciously accepted the help of Intel developers in optimizing critical sections of their code with SSE assembler routines. Is there somebody at IBM who has maintained or is trying to maintain access to these codes on POWER? I can't even see an #ifdef for folks who don't have SSE...
