Over at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, Paromita Pain writes that researchers at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine are using TACC supercomputers to better understand membrane proteins, which play a major role in determining whether medications are efficient and whether they have side effects. According to Dr. Marta Filizola, understanding how opioid receptors work […]

TACC has released Most Pixels Ever: Cluster Edition, an open source software tool that allows researchers, especially those in the humanities, to create interactive, multimedia visualizations on high resolution, tiled displays. The goal is to make visualization tools easier for humanities researchers to use,” said Rob Turknett, digital media, arts and humanities coordinator at TACC. […]
In this video from SC12, Lars Koesterke from the Texas Advanced Computing Center describes how hundreds of science applications are being ported to the the new Stampede supercomputer powered by the Intel Xeon Phi.
Could grass clippings be used to produce fuel for our cars and furnaces? TACC supercomputing resources have helped enable new science at the University of Virginia around biofuel reactions. Using density functional theory, a quantum mechanical modeling method used in physics and chemistry to investigate the electronic structure of molecules, the researchers calculated the interactions […]
As the first installation to deploy the new MIC technology at large scale in the forthcoming Stampede supercomputer, TACC and partners will soon begin offering training workshops, technical documentation, and academic content to help the research community rapidly develop applications using Intel’s new Xeon Phi coprocessors. MIC’s support of standard programming languages and tools allow […]
In this video, the Texas Advanced Computing Center makes preparations for the Stampede supercomputer. When fully deployed in 2013, the 9 Petaflop Stampede system will employ Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors and innovative cooling technologies.
Over at BSN, Theo Valich writes that Jay Boisseau’s presentation at the recent Intel Developer Forum sheds light on TACC’s plans to deploy the Stampede supercomputer powered by Xeon Phi co-processors. The system originally targeted 10 PFLOPS, but it seems they might miss the mark by a few dozen/hundred TFLOPS. According to information given, the […]
It’s no secret that many researchers today find themselves devoting a lot of their effort into writing code when they’d rather be doing science. In an effort to change that, staff at the Texas Advanced Computing Center have developed the AGAVE API, a new tool to make scientific computing on the web more functional and […]
Researchers are using TACC supercomputers to target a small group of molecules for therapeutic use, saving significant time and money. As described in the February 2012 edition of the Journal of Structural Biology, the process uses information from electron microscopy and knowledge about drug binding to create 3D models and to simulate the interactions of […]
While the Tree of Life film bares the rare distinction of being the only movie to put me to sleep three times in one sitting, the study of evolution through Phylogenetics is a very lively topic these days thanks to the power of HPC. Researchers are using now TACC supercomputers to develop and test smarter, […]
