ROSIE Blooms

Our bodies are made of biomolecules like proteins, nucleic acids, fats and sugars. These biomolecules are folded into specific 3D structures -- predetermined by the DNA and RNA sequences that build...

Lessons of a Tadpole

The flow of information between cells in our bodies is exceedingly complex: sensing, signaling, and influencing each other in a constant flow of microscopic engagements. These interactions are...

Using XSEDE to understand how dark matter influences galaxy formation

Mike Boylan-Kolchin, assistant professor of astronomy at the University of Texas at Austin, uses XSEDE's Stampede supercomputer located at The Texas Advanced Computing Center.

Travel Transformation

Fully autonomous vehicles or driverless cars are capable of sensing their environment and navigating without human input. They can detect surroundings using a variety of techniques such as radar,...

GECAT PROJECT ANNOUNCES TWO NEW FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

This GECAT project exists to support scientific collaboration and cooperation of researchers and developers spanning national boundaries as a way to develop new, innovative cyberinfrastructure for...

Teaching Computers to Recognize Unhealthy Guts

A new proof-of-concept study by researchers from the University of California San Diego has succeeded in training computers to "learn" what a healthy versus an unhealthy gut microbiome...

Comet Surpasses 10,000 Users

Comet, the petascale supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), an Organized Research Unit of UC San Diego, has easily surpassed its target of serving at least 10,000 researchers...

Update Computer Beats Humans

In the "Brains vs. AI" competition at the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, a CMU School of Computer Science artificial intelligence program—"AI"—called Libratus beat...

2017 International Summer School on HPC Challenges in Computational Sciences

Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from institutions in Canada, Europe, Japan and the United States are invited to apply for the eighth International Summer School on HPC Challenges in...

Bridges Supercomputer Completed

The Phase 2 Upgrade of the Bridges supercomputer at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) has been approved by the National Science Foundation (NSF), which funded the project.

Designing Safer Buildings Against Natural Hazards

Natural hazards engineers have lacked the cyber infrastructure necessary to push their collaborative research to the next level—a level where computing resources and relevant, up-to-date...

Bridges Plays Poker

Four of the world's best professional poker players will match wits with an artificial intelligence developed by Carnegie Mellon University and using XSEDE's Bridges system, located at...

Decades of Making Impossible Research Possible

In 1985/1986, the National Science Foundation (NSF) committed to "making impossible research possible" by funding five supercomputer centers:

Modeling the perfect classroom

Supercomputers have been used to model intricate biological cells and the greater cosmos, but now XSEDE resources and help services are helping school teachers and administrators figure out how to...

Supercomputing Black Hole Jets

Black holes make one of the great mysteries in physics. You might know that black holes are so massive that nothing, not even light, can escape once it gets close enough.   ...
