The Protein Data Bank archive has released a new Coronavirus protease structure following the recent coronavirus outbreak, an ongoing viral epidemic primarily affecting mainland China that now threatens to spread to other parts of the world.
Researchers at Oregon State University have been using the Comet supercomputer at SDSC to test an algorithm they believe will reduce errors in the widely used three-day forecasts for water temperature, salinity levels, sea heights, and currents off the Oregon and Washington coasts.
A new study published late last year in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society used supercomputer simulations to explore molecular gas within and surrounding the intracluster medium, or the space between galaxies in a galaxy cluster.
An international team of astronomers from UC San Diego, the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias and the University of Cambridge have detected large amounts of oxygen in the atmosphere of one of the oldest and most elementally depleted stars known as “J0815+4729.”
New research findings, published in Nature, by UC San Diego Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Akif Tezcan offer a protein architecture that pushes the boundaries of synthetic protein design past what is considered state-of-the-art.
Scientists at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) used SDSC’s Comet supercomputer to help model the formation of terrestrial planets such as Mercury, Venus, and Mars in a quest to explore if there are Earth-like planets outside our solar system.
UC San Diego’s Seth Cohen and his research team, including colleagues at Germany’s Ruhr University Bochum led by Nils Metzler-Nolte, used a new type of metal-based molecular building block to serve as the basis for developing new therapeutic drugs. Their work is published in Chemical Science.
Building upon decades of research on how to make boron carbide even more efficient, an engineering team at the University of Florida (UF) has been conducting simulations using SDSC's Comet supercomputer to better understand the nanoscale level of this important material.
Researchers from UC San Diego and MIT achieved impressive agreement between theory and experiment, shedding light on how water interacts with MOFs and moving closer to developing materials that address global water scarcity.
