The Galaxy project is one of the world's largest, most successful, web-based bioinformatics platforms. With regard to Covid-19, researchers perform the majority of their parallel processing and analyses on the XSEDE-allocated Stampede2 and Jetstream supercomputers located at TACC
Viruses such as the novel coronavirus rely on the host cell membrane to drastically bend and eventually let loose the replicated viruses trapped inside the cell. Scientists have used supercomputer simulations to help propose a mechanism for this budding off of viruses.
Screening mammography is an important tool against breast cancer, but it has its limitations. A "normal" screening mammogram means that a woman doesn't have cancer now. But doctors wonder whether "normal" images contain clues about a woman's risk of developing breast cancer in the future.
