Education and Training
Biophysics and engineering students from Johns Hopkins University and The Ohio State University (OSU) successfully used distance learning technology to participate in a short course, Molecular Modeling of Biological Interactions. Lectures culminated on March 31with two classes – one at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and one at Hopkins more than 400 miles away. The classes studied how high performance computing (HPC) can advance scientific discovery in the biological sciences.
On March 7-10, the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) hosted the fourth annual Programming Environment and Training (PET) Technical Review for the Department of Defense (DoD) High Performance Computing Modernization Program Office (HPCMPO). The event was held at the Blackwell Hotel and The Ohio State University (OSU) Conference Center.
