Study analyzes role of PARP enzyme in eukaryotes

An Ohio State University molecular biologist leveraged a supercomputer to help better define the family tree of a group of enzymes that have been implicated in a wide range of human diseases and are important targets for anti-cancer therapies.

Along with several OSU colleagues, Rebecca S. Lamb, Ph.D., an assistant professor of Molecular Genetics, recently analyzed the evolutionary history of the poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase (PARP) superfamily.

Ohio Supercomputer Center, Genome Research Institute Recruit Biologists for New Platform Tool, GRIDP

New Web Service Will Speed Up Bioinformatics Research

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and University of Cincinnati’s Genome Research Institute (GRI) are recruiting research biologists at the Ohio Collaborative Conference on Bioinformatics (OCCBIO) this week and at other venues to help test its new computational biology tool as an initial project of the Ralph Regula School of Computational Science.

Senators DeWine, Kohl Introduce Blue Collar Computing Bill, an OSC Initiative, to Support Businesses, Manufacturers

Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH) and Senator Herb Kohl (D-WI) have introduced the “Blue Collar Computing and Business Assistance Act of 2006,” an initiative championed by the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) to make high performance computing (HPC) resources available to small businesses and manufacturers.

The bill creates the Advanced Multidisciplinary Computing Software Institute (AMCSI) with a threefold purpose to:

Researchers, Manufacturers Speak at Technology Conference in Columbus

The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) held the Fifth Annual Windows on the Future Conference Wednesday March 8 at the Hilton Columbus at Easton Town Center. The conference was co-sponsored by OSC's networking division (OARnet) and high performance computing (HPC) divisions.

The Windows on the Future Conference united internationally-recognized experts to discuss new and emerging computing, networking, and related technologies, as well as the impact these technologies will have on future research, applications, and Ohio's economy.

Director of Energy Research Keynotes October 6 Meeting

-Dr. Martha Krebs on the National Role of Energy Research

Dr. Martha Krebs, the first woman ever appointed to lead the U.S. Office of Energy Research (OER), will give the keynote address at the conference: Combustion, Environment, and Heating Technology--The Role of High Performance Simulation. This conference, hosted by the Ohio Supercomputer Center, is on October 6-7, 1994, at the Fawcett Center For Tomorrow on the campus of The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio.

Medicine Meets Virtual Reality

Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) Research Scientist Don Stredney was selected to present "Biomedical Applications of High Performance Computing" at the Medicine Meets Virtual Reality II conference in San Diego, California, January 27-30, 1994, sponsored by the University of California San Diego School of Medicine.

On Friday, January 28, Stredney will detail the current activity of OSC and The Ohio State University in developing a system to provide an intuitive interface for manipulating and experiencing virtual data sets, specifically volume reconstructions of medical data.

Student's Work With Epidural Simulator Lands Her a Place in National Conference

When Leslie Hiemenz's doctoral adviser encouraged her to take her engineering skills and use them to advance medicine, she never imagined she would end up presenting her work at a national conference.

"I can't believe that I have come this far," said Leslie Hiemenz, a Ph.D. student in biomedical engineering at The Ohio State University. "It feels awesome. I keep giggling every time I read the conference poster and see that the presenters are 'experts in their fields.'"
