Modeling protein interactions with drugs has long been computationally challenging. One obstacle is these interactions often take relatively long to occur and conventional molecular dynamics simulation is insufficient. This week a group of researchers, using several EXSEDE supercomputers, report a hybrid in silico-experimental approach that shows promise as a drug design tool for use with G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs)
A group of researchers from UC Berkeley and UCSD used NERSC supercomputing resources to model the efficacy of microbubbles and high-intensity ultrasound for breaking up stroke-causing clots.
It may not be possible to prevent devastating space-weather events like solar storms from reaching the earth’s surface, but with enough warning, we can prepare for them. Scientists believe that mapping the earth’s magnetosphere – the magnetic shield that stops most but not all of these storms – is the first step.
San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) is announcing a bold new cloud and analytics-based initiative, called Sherlock. Established by SDSC with the assistance of SD Technology and Chickasaw Nation Industries, the Sherlock-branded project represents an “extensive portfolio of information technology services for healthcare and government.”
A giant leap in bone structure research paves the way for advances in osteoporosis treatment; details from UCSD’s Research CyberInfrastructure (RCI) Program reveal what PIs really want; and a cloud computing programming model puts the focus on predictable performance. Plus GPU-related research and more…
Gordon, a supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputing Center on the campus of the University of California at San Diego is helping point the direction of the Large Hadron Collider’s next research project.
UCSD rolls out a next-generation bypass network across its La Jolla, Calif., campus.
Natural and man-made networks appear to mirror the structure of the universe.
