With the help of ACCESS resource Expanse, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign have been studying how to create some of the tiniest motors ever invented with inspiration from biological systems like DNA.
Some scientists have recently studied perovskites because of their material properties that can be used in things such as solar cells. A team of researchers from Ames National Laboratory and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich – along with a talented undergraduate – used the powerful HPC resource at the San Diego Supercomputer Center for their study.
Engineering scholars from Johns Hopkins University used Expanse at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego to create simulations to model the friction between two rough surfaces coated with fatty acids.
The ACCESS Allocations team shares facts and figures illustrating a successful first year of the program.
A team of computational chemists from Carnegie Mellon University ran simulations on an Anton 2 supercomputer and the Bridges-2 system at PSC to reveal insights about a protein that plays a role in epileptic seizures.
The ACCESS Integration Roadmaps Working Group is announcing three new resource integration options for ACCESS resource providers.
A team from Carnegie Mellon University and the Santa Fe Institute compared data from more than 400 world religions in a unique way by applying landscape metaphors – peaks and valleys – to examine functional patterns of worship and belief. Their approach using the Bridges-2 system revealed how some religions persist or change and others die out.
University of Kansas researchers who study a rare form of Alzheimer’s disease used Expanse at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego to conduct studies on how mutations of a critical protein enzyme could be treated to better control thought, language and memory.
