The Call for Participation in XSEDE15, covering all aspects of participation in the conference, is now open. XSEDE15 will be held in St. Louis on July 26–30 at the Marriott Renaissance St. Louis Grand Hotel.
Swirling weather systems of the ocean known as eddies might play a major role in climate change. Using the Kraken supercomputer (now decommissioned), researchers discovered that eddies behave differently than scientists had thought.
Compute allocations on Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) supercomputers have enabled researchers to effectively simulate ultrasound propagation through breast models, which will provide reference data for improving breast cancer diagnostics.
Simulations done on the Kraken supercomputer (decommissioned earlier this year) illustrate the traits of hydrophobic ("water-fearing") cancer drugs and can pave the way for the design of more-efficient ways of delivering the drugs to the cells in the body.
The combination of experimentation and computer simulation is providing an understanding of the structure and dynamics of lignin, an abundant, renewable resource found in wood and plants that could improve lithium-ion batteries.
Supercomputing resources support research that is shedding some light on abnormal protein deposits associated with Parkinson's disease.
The XSEDE Industry Relations team has created a survey to better identify the training needs of industry with respect to computational modeling and high-performance computing skills.
The Darter supercomputer at the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) is making it possible for a University of Tennessee, Knoxville, researcher to clarify phenomena and features of macromolecules that are of great importance in the development of sustainable energy technologies.
A research team based at the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences collaborated with the Seattle Children's Research Institute to develop and perfect a high-throughput workflow for the update of a proteins database and the robust interpretation of the genetic makeup of organisms. The project contributes to the effort to describe biological processes on a molecular level.
The financial services and medical insurance industries powerfully influence the lives of people. Resources from the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) are supporting research that's exploring the dynamics of competition in those industries.
