SCEC17 Workshop Participants
TACC Helps Organize Workshop on Software Challenges in Supercomputing
In December, TACC collaborated with the Centre for Development in Advanced Computing (CDAC) in India to host the "Software Challenges to Exascale Computing" workshop. The workshop fostered international collaborations in the area of software for the current and next generation supercomputing systems.
A recent study found that genes can be activated in human stem cells to initiate biomineralization, a key step in bone formation. Scientists engineered spider web silk combined with silica to activate the cell membrane protein receptor called integrin. TACC's Stampede1 supercomputer aided in the research, which will help efforts to cure diseases such as osteoporosis and calcific aortic valve disease.
