The Ohio Supercomputer Center has a long history of supporting industrial research, reaching back as far as the Center’s founding in 1987. Manufacturers have leveraged the Center’s computational and storage resources to design and test many products, such as electronics, fans, containers, fuel cells and wind deflectors.
Until 2018, scientists could find better terrain maps of Mars than they had of Antarctica.
Now, with software engineering, code optimization and parallel software development assistance from the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), they have “the highest-resolution terrain map by far of any continent,” according to Ian Howat, Ph.D.
The Ohio State University’s Marymegan Daly and her research partners probed the depths of Monterey Bay to collect samples of the tube-dwelling sea anemone, samples that are allowing the scientists to generate and analyze the transcriptomes of these ancient animals and reveal the diversity of toxins within their venom.
