TACC’s Stampede2 HPC Helps ID New RNA Molecules for Disease Study

Researchers at Ghent University, Amsterdam University of Medicine, National Chiao Tung University, UNSW Sydney, Illumina, and the Baylor College of Medicine have built one of the most comprehensive catalogs of the human transcriptome ever. By combining complementary sequencing techniques, they have deepened our understanding of the function of known ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules and discovered […]

HPC vs. HIV-1: Stampede2, Bridges and Darwin Uncover Nucleotide Infection Process

By Jorge Salazar, Science Writer, Texas Advanced Computing Center Viruses lurk in the grey area between the living and the nonliving, according to scientists. Like living things, they replicate but they don’t do it on their own. The HIV-1 virus, like all viruses, needs to hijack a host cell through infection in order to make copies […]

Podcast: 18 Petaflop Stampede 2 Supercomputer Powers Research at TACC

In this Texas Standard podcast, Dan Stanzione from TACC describes Stampede2, the most powerful university supercomputer in the United States. “Phase 1 of the Stampede2 rollout, now complete, features 4,200 Knights Landing (KNL) nodes, the second generation of processors based on Intel’s Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture. Later this summer Phase 2 will add 1,736 Intel Xeon Skylake nodes.”
