Kraken Chews on Gribble Data for Industrial Enzyme Research

Jun 25, 2013 |

A diminutive marine crustacean called the Gribble landed on the biofuel industry’s radar for its unique ability to digest wood in salty conditions. Now, researchers in the US and the UK are putting the University of Tennessee’s Kraken supercomputer to work modeling an enzyme in the Gribble’s gut, which could unlock the key to developing better industrial enzymes in the future.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory Helps Advance Scientific Discovery with HPC

Jan 9, 2012 |

<p>The impact of using supercomputers to solve complex calculations and simulate atomic structure behavior is tremendous, reducing some scientific research (such as this Germanium-72 experiment) from months to less than a week. In a short period of time scientists can now perform many more experiments and advance discovery in real-time.</p>
