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…
The smartphone has already usurped the role of the computer in a number of ways, whether you use it for navigation, to check the weather, or take and share photos of a night out with friends. Now, thanks to a new app developed by Stanford University scientists and Sony, the smartphone is taking over yet another domain to Read more…
After a successful five-year run, Sony is ending its participation with Stanford University’s Folding@home project.
Originally designed for video games, GPUs are now making their mark in the world of chemistry.
The Singularity is not so near after all.
Last week, the Folding@home team reported that they achieved five petaflops of processing power for their popular protein folding research project.
