The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) will serve as a core collaborator in the new NSF AI Institute for Intelligent Cyberinfrastructure with Computational Learning in the Environment (ICICLE), one of 11 such Artificial Intelligence (AI) Research Institutes created as part of a $200 million grant announced today by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The Ohio State University Molecular and Cellular Imaging Center (MCIC) serves as a shared technology laboratory to facilitate research in microscopy, genomics and bioinformatics. Since its founding in 2000, the center has grown into a data-intensive operation that has thrived in partnership the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).
An election year in the United States is marked by incisive campaign ads, heated debates and get-out-the-vote messaging. The bombast of the 2020 presidential election was further amplified by the heavily politicized COVID-19 pandemic. With the help of the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), The Ohio State University’s Skyler Cranmer used Twitter data to examine the extent of this partisan polarization.
Ohio State University Professor Bryan Carstens spends his time researching biology and genetics and often runs across immense data sets that are hard to navigate. Carstens worked with the Ohio Supercomputer Center to build connections between databases for easier analysis and access.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) 2019-20 Research Report is now available online. The publication highlights news from OSC and spotlights the research and education enabled by Ohio's statewide high performance computing resource.
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.
