Modeling on SDSC’s Comet Supercomputer Reveals Findings on Pregnancy-related Hypertension

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), preeclampsia, or pregnancy-related hypertension, occurs in roughly one in 25 pregnancies in the United States. The causes are unknown and childbirth is the only remedy, which can sometimes lead to adverse perinatal outcomes, such as preterm delivery. To better understand this serious pregnancy complication, which reduces blood supply to the fetus, researchers used Comet at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego to conduct cellular modeling to detail the differences between normal and preeclampsia placental tissue. 

LLVM Holds the Keys to Exascale Supercomputing

The recent proliferation of new hardware technologies has galvanized the high-performance computing (HPC) community and created the ability to deliver the nation’s forthcoming exascale-capable supercomputers and data centers. It has also made LLVM-based compiler technology the default gatekeeper to these new systems. LLVM, an open-source collection of compiler and toolchain technologies, serves as a test bed for proposed parallelization extensions (e.g., the interoperability directive in OpenMP 5.1) and as a vehicle to provide production-quality parallel compiler implementations. Johannes Doerfert, a researcher at Argonne National Laboratory, notes that “LLVM is a vehicle to provide performant implementations of OpenMP….
