Researchers at Ohio University recently discovered that disrupting COVID-19’s RNA and its ability to reproduce may be an additional way to stop the virus in conjunction with the vaccine. Jennifer Hines, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and students in her lab utilized the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) to analyze the three-dimensional structure of RNA.
As citizens around the world first caught wind about the COVID-19 virus, almost no one predicted that it would become an international pandemic with such far-reaching effects. Wasiur KhudaBukhsh, a president’s postdoctoral scholar at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute at The Ohio State University, was no exception.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), through a partnership with IBM, has expanded their storage capacity by 8.6 petabytes. This addition almost tripled the Center’s high performance storage capacity, ensuring researchers across Ohio will have access to cutting-edge secure storage options.
Academic research provides students and staff alike the ability to pursue ground-breaking discoveries in numerous fields of study. These findings are propelled by Ohio universities’ access to high performance computing (HPC) through the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC). Many of the state’s researchers gathered at OSC for the biannual Statewide Users Group (SUG) conference on Thursday to share their current research and innovations that have used HPC.
Soon, researchers throughout Ohio and beyond will have access to larger and even more secure storage options when it comes to housing their voluminous and potentially sensitive data.
A paper authored by staff members of the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) earned best paper honors in the Facilitation of Advanced Research Computing track at the Practice & Experience in Advanced Research Computing Conference (PEARC), being held July 28–Aug. 1 in Chicago.
While the impressive breakthroughs from Ohio’s leading research universities stem from the brilliant minds of students and faculty, the discoveries are greatly accelerated through the use of high perfo
Exciting innovations and new research frontiers are breaking through every day in Ohio, and attendees of the fall Statewide Users Group Conference at the Ohio Supercomputer Center on Thursday got a preview of some innovations to come.
SUG is a volunteer group composed of the Ohio university faculty who provide OSC’s leadership with program and policy advice and direction to ensure a productive environment for research.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (Aug. 7, 2018) – A broad array of researchers, developers, system administrators, and students who share an interest in the MVAPICH open-source library for high performance computing have gathered at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) this week (Aug. 6-8) for the sixth meeting of the MVAPICH Users Group (MUG).
Fifteen Ohio middle school girls will be spending a week of their summer at the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) 29th annual Young Women’s Summer Institute (YWSI), July 15-21 at The Ohio State University.
