As mandates prevented gatherings over the holiday season, crowds in Chile and Argentina donned masks and eye shields to view some a two-minute solar eclipse on December 14. A week before, researchers at PSI used SDSC's Expanse supercomputer to see how closely they could simulate the event.
Simulations conducted using the Comet supercomputer at UC San Diego's San Diego Supercomputer Center provide new insights on how chloride corrodes structural metals, causing severe economic and environmental impacts.
New simulations done on supercomputers may help researchers understand how these inhibitors react and potentially help to develop a new generation of drugs to target viruses with high death rates including SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Researchers recently created detailed simulations on the Comet system at the San Diego Supercomputer Center showing how these stiff red blood cells flow through blood vessels, deforming and colliding along the way.
A team of SDSC researchers recently created a pharmacophore model and conducted data mining of the database of drugs approved by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to find potential inhibitors of papain-like protease of SARS-CoV2, one of the main viral proteins responsible for COVID-19
Supercomputer simulations, done using resources at UC San Diego by researchers at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), show how oil dilutes under specific conditions, which may lead to more effective countermeasures against large oil spills.
The transport of nine types of plastics floating in Lake Erie was modeled in studies that used SDSC's Comet supercomputer to create a 3D model of invasive plastic particles.
A team from the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego contributed to a study led by the Vanderbilt Vaccine Center on T cell receptors, which play a vital role in alerting the adaptive immune system to mount an attack on invading foreign pathogens, including Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
Multi-university collaboration to jointly develop a new science gateway allowing researchers to study the behavior of new and existing materials using X-ray diffraction.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego, the University of Washington, and UC Berkeley have entered production operations of the National Science Foundation-funded CloudBank program, which aims to simplify the use of public clouds across computer science research and education.
