dc.description.abstract It is becoming increasingly difficult for researchers with little or no formal computer science background to make effective use of supercomputers and other vector machines in their own fields of research. Automatic vectorization tools have been put forward as a possible solution to this problem. A description is given of experiences in utilizing an automatic tool to vectorize a program that models the frequency of lethal autosomal recessive genes. The vectorization was performed in order to run the program on a Cray Y-MP supercomputer. Drawbacks of current automatic vectorization tools are discussed, and approaches that could be used in the future to allow users of all levels of sophistication to utilize the full potential of supercomputers are suggested. en
