HPC at TACC, PSC, Univ. of Chicago Supports Completion of 1st Multiscale COVID-19 Virus Model

The Texas Advanced Computing Center has announced completion of what it said is the first complete, multiscale model of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, a project that leveraged HPC resources at TACC, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) and the University of Chicago Research Computing Center (UCRCC). According to an article published late yesterday by TACC Technical Writer […]

Anton 2 at PSC for Coronavirus Binding Simulation, COVID-19 Test Development

A team at the University of Arkansas is using the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center’s Anton 2 system to simulate molecular systems for microseconds or longer to investigate how the Coronavirus that causes COVID-19 attaches to human cells, PSC reported. Anton 2, developed by privately held D. E. Shaw Research (DESRES) of New York, is a special-purpose, […]

Job of the Week: HPC System Administrator at D.E. Shaw Research

D.E. Shaw Research is seeking and HPC System Administrator in our Job of the Week. “Exceptional sysadmins sought to manage systems, storage, and network infrastructure for a New York–based interdisciplinary research group. Ideal candidates should have strong fundamental knowledge of Linux concepts such as file systems, networking, and processes in addition to practical experience administering Linux systems. Relevant areas of expertise might include large-installation systems administration experience and strong programming and scripting ability, but specific knowledge of and level of experience in any of these areas is less critical than exceptional intellectual ability.”

Anton 2 Supercomputer to Speed Molecular Simulations at PSC

Today the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) announced a $1.8-million National Institutes of Health grant to make the next-generation Anton 2 supercomputer developed by D. E. Shaw Research (DESRES) available to the biomedical research community. A specialized system for modeling the function and dynamics of biomolecules, the Anton 2 machine at PSC will be the only one of its kind publicly available to U.S. scientists. The grant also extends the operation of the Anton 1 supercomputer currently at PSC until the new Anton 2 is deployed, expected in the Fall of 2016.
