Things that happen on the surface are often given short shrift compared to what goes on inside. But when it comes to chemical reactions, what occurs on the surface can mean the difference between a working material and one that refuses to perform its duty.
A team of researchers led by Jiajun Cao, a PhD candidate in the College of Computer and Information Science (CCIS) at Northeastern University, recently completed what appears to be the largest known instance of transparent checkpointing.
Amaro, a professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California, San Diego, has been studying this important molecule for years. She is motivated by the fact that the p53 protein somehow helps prevent the formation of cancerous cells.
Even though it’s almost impossible to see, computational biophysicist Rommie Amaro is using the Stampede supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center at The University of Texas at Austin to model the largest atomic level system of the tumor suppression protein p53 to date — over 1.5 million atoms.
Amy McGovern, a computer scientist at the University of Oklahoma, has been studying tornadoes, nature’s most violent storms for eight years. She uses computational thinking to help understand and solve these scientific problems.
Using a unique computational approach to rapidly sample, in millisecond time intervals, proteins in their natural state of gyrating, bobbing, and weaving, a research team from UC San Diego and Monash University in Australia has identified promising drug leads that may selectively combat heart disease, from arrhythmias to cardiac failure.
The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), first established in 2011, has been awarded a $110 million, five-year National Science Foundation (NSF) award to continue expanding access of advanced cyberinfrastructure resources to the nation’s scientist and engineers.
Today, an ambitious project called Soybean Knowledge Base (SoyKB) developed at the University of Missouri-Columbia (MU) aims to find and share comprehensive knowledge from within the soybean, its genetic and genomic data, all publicly available and achieved through the use of high-performance computing.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a five-year $15 million grant to establish a Science Gateways Community Institute to accelerate the development and application of highly functional, sustainable science gateways that address the needs of researchers across the full spectrum of NSF directorates.
Supercomputer simulations have shown scientists a new way to generate controlled beam of gamma rays from lasers. Nearly one million CPU hours on Stampede and Lonestar HPC systems were needed for the particle-in-cell simulation.

It is called the National Water Model, a program that takes in weather, river and geological data and predicts when and where major floods will happen. Researchers are calling this tool one of the most significant developments in meteorological science.
During a trip to Dell in Austin, Texas this week, little did The Next Platform know that the hardware giant and nearby Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) had major news to share on the supercomputing front.
With a $30 million award from the National Science Foundation announced today, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) will stand up a second-generation Stampede system based on Dell PowerEdge servers equipped with Intel “Knights Landing” processors, next-generation Xeon chips and future 3D XPoint memory.
When a hail storm moved through Fort Worth, Texas, on May 5, 1995, it battered the highly populated area with hail up to 4 inches in diameter, as well as striking a local outdoor festival known as the Fort Worth Mayfest.
