E-C-S-Yes: XSEDE's Extended Collaborative Support Services   How do cancer researchers learn to use the command line? Where can an art historian get help with machine learning? What happens when astronomers migrate their work to supercomputers, but the code still isn't running...

XSEDE IMPACT APRIL 2018

Armed with a robust computational approach that stretches the amount of time needed to capture the gyrations of proteins in their natural state, a research team has revealed for the first time intricate details about how a key molecular switch, implicated in a variety of medical conditions including heart disease, is turned on and off.

XSEDE IMPACT MARCH 2018

XSEDE Enables One of the Largest Earth Sciences Data Collections in the Country The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University is using XSEDE resources to host one of the largest data collections for Earth sciences of its type in the country. The data relates to the Ross Ice Shelf, a massive slab of floating ice that is about the same size as the country of France. Ice shelves, like icebergs, lie mainly below the waterline. This means that the...

A better approach: Bringing supercomputing to psychology Studying the psychology of decision making can be messy. In a typical decision making study, subjects make choices and psychologists compare their responses to the predictions of a particular theory. However, changing the parameters of a theory even slightly can spawn thousands of variations. In consequence, testing just one of those theories, or a handful, is unlikely to lead to the best possible...

XSEDE IMPACT NOVEMBER 2017

  XSEDE at SC17 XSEDE will be hosting a collaboration booth at SC17 in Denver, Colorado from November 13th through 16th. We invite any SC17 attendees to visit XSEDE at booth #225 to learn about XSEDE-enabled projects, chat with XSEDE representatives, and see what type of resources and collaborations XSEDE offers researchers. We will also be hosting two booth events to encourage XSEDE meetups and project collaborations. Hope to see you there! Visit...
