Supercomputing Dark Matter

Dan Rosplock from Virginia Tech writes that Large-scale simulations could shed light on the ‘dark’ elements that make up most of our cosmos. By reverse engineering the evolution of these elements, they could provide unique insights into more than 14 billion years of cosmic history.

Biocomplexity Institute moves forward with HPC and Dell EMC

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community Meeting, Kevin Shinpaugh from Virginia Tech describes how Dell EMC works with the Biocomplexity Institute. “The Biocomplexity Institute of Virginia Tech’s IT group provides the infrastructure, applications, and services that power our research. With high-performance computing technologies, our researchers are fighting multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, modeling the spread of beliefs through social media, and simulating complex systems to inform policy-making.”
