Life in a Drop: Ohio Supercomputer Helps Prove Hydration’s Role in Protein Folding

Jul 14, 2016 |

It’s perhaps fitting that in the middle of the summer, when water management is a common challenge, that a paper in the Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) offers more proof that life as we know it can’t occur without water. Using Ohio Supercomputing Center resources, researchers have shown the critical role water plays in actively guiding protein folding and movement. “For a long time, scientists have been trying to figure out how water interacts with proteins…

Stanford Links Smartphones for Distributed, Disease-fighting Simulations
