Computational phylogeny is a challenging application even for the most powerful supercomputers. One of significant application in this are is Randomized Axelerated Maximum Likelihood (RAxML) which is used for sequential and parallel Maximum Likelihood based inference of large phylogenetic trees. This paper covers scalability testing results on high-performance computers on up to 256 cores, for coarse and fine grained parallelization using MPI, Pthreads and hybrid version and comparison between results of traditional and SSE3 version of RAxML.
