Hmm Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics....
Which Molucular modeling code do you plan to run.
Most but not all are built on MPI libraries does
Debian have a pre-packaged MPI development and
run time environment. Look for things like Open MPI...
The simulation codes you plan to run will decide
a lot of things. For example it may cause you to move from
Debian to ROCKS/Centos or something else. Based
on your question you are a Bio guy more than
a computer guy. If so let your application codes drive
the cluster decisions.
