Purdue Supercomputer Gets Second Life in Colombia

“Besides trying to identify likely drug targets for new HIV treatments, EAFIT’s first supercomputer, named Apolo, is being used for everything from earthquake science in a country regularly shaken by tremors, to a groundbreaking examination of the tropical disease leishmaniasis, to the most “green” way of processing cement. The machine speeds the time to science for Colombian researchers and lets them tackle bigger problems.”

Exascale Computing Project Selects Co-Design Center for Graph Analytics

The Exascale Computing Project (ECP) has selected its fifth Co-Design Center to focus on Graph Analytics — combinatorial (graph) kernels that play a crucial enabling role in many data analytic computing application areas as well as several ECP applications. Initially, the work will be a partnership among PNNL, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, and Purdue University.

Job of the Week: Senior HPC Systems Administrator at Purdue

Purdue University is seeking a Senior HPC Systems Administrator in our Job of the Week. “In this role, you will assist world renowned researchers in advancing science. Additionally, as Senior HPC Systems Administrator, you will be responsible for large sections of Purdue’s innovative computational research environment and help set direction of future research systems. This role requires an individual to work closely with researchers, systems administrators, and developers throughout the University and partner institutions to develop large-impact projects and computational systems.”

Supercomputing the Zika Virus at Purdue

Researchers at Purdue University are using HPC to help fight the Zika virus. “Purdue’s award-winning Community Cluster Program played a significant role in enabling the research team to create the first detailed, 3-D structural map of the Zika virus, a key step toward developing treatments. The technique the team used to map the virus structure combined cryo-electron microscopy and high-performance computing. With the microscope, the Purdue researchers capture images of many Zika virusDetailed image of the Zika virus structure. particles, or individual instances of the virus.”
