Death from sudden cardiac arrest makes headlines when it strikes athletes. But it also causes the most deaths by natural causes in the U.S., estimated at 325,000 per year.


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

April 2020 IMPACT

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.

Boron carbide is one of the hardest materials on earth, yet it's also very lightweight, which explains why it has been used in making vehicle armor and body protection for soldiers.

December 2019 IMPACT

Iron, one of the most abundant elements in the universe, is most typically found in gaseous form in stars such as the sun and in a more condensed form in planets such as Earth.

November 2019 IMPACT

Over the past few years, offshore wind farms have emerged across the world as a viable source of energy.


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.


This may come as a shock, if you're moving fast enough. The shock being shock waves. Far out in the cosmos, a collapsing star generates shock waves from particles racing near the speed of light as the star goes supernova.
