CyVerse’s Atmosphere Platform comes to Massachusetts Open Cloud

Recently, the Massachusetts Open Cloud (MOC) adopted Atmosphere as a means of making it easier for academics to access cloud resources. MOC is a public computational cloud based upon the Open Cloud Exchange model in which many stakeholders participate in the cloud’s development and operation. The project caters to a varied community of users, including academic entities and industrial partners, and those who require computational resources as well as groups providing such resources.

Supercomputing Cancer Diagnostics with CyVerse

Adam Buntzman and his colleagues at the University of Arizona recently developed a tool that uses CyVerse supercomputing resources to create the first nearly comprehensive map of the human immunome, all the possible immune receptors our bodies can make. “When people go to a clinic, it’s usually because they’re already sick,” Buntzman said. “If doctors could detect cancerous cells before they grow drastically out of proportion to healthy cells, patients would have much higher odds of successful cancer treatment and survival.”

NSF’s iPlant Rebrands to CyVerse, Provides Data Management and Computation Across Scientific Disciplines

The National Science Foundation’s premier data management platform for the life sciences has rebranded, shedding the project’s original label of iPlant Collaborative and donning the new name CyVerse. The rebrand emphasizes the project’s capacity to provide data management and computation services beyond plant sciences, for collaborations across scientific disciplines.
