Using Supercomputers to Illuminate the Renaissance

Most of us have heard about the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, based on the "six degrees of separation" concept, which posits that any two people on Earth are six or fewer acquaintance links...

Opening the spigot at XSEDE

A boost from sequencing technologies and computational tools is in store for scientists studying how cells change which of their genes are active.

Virtual File System Will Save Vast Computer Storage Space

Researchers analyzing complex multidimensional images may be able to save hundreds of terabytes of disk space, a team from PSC reported at the XSEDE16 supercomputing conference in Miami today.

Successful Test of Big-Data Transfer Scheduling
