  Skin Cancer Mystery Revealed in Yin and Yang Protein  

Skin Cancer Mystery Revealed in Yin and Yang Protein

A recent study in the journal Science determined the structure of an important gene linked to melanoma, and showed how drugs that target the gene can activate a variant that can trigger melanoma. TACC's Stampede2 supercomputer simulations modeled important proteins in the pathway linked to skin cancer. The study will help lead to a better understanding of skin cancer and the design of better drugs.

  Decrappifying Brain Images with Machine Learning  

Decrappifying Brain Images with Machine Learning

Researchers from the Salk Institute in San Diego used deep learning to speed up brain image microscopy by 16 times. The team trained the deep learning system using data from UT Austin researchers and supercomputers at TACC. The project shows the capacity of cross-disciplinary collaborations to spur scientific discoveries.
