Simulations improve characterization of cosmology’s ‘standard ruler’
Columbus, OH (July 12, 2011) – Ohio State University researchers are leveraging powerful supercomputers to investigate one of the key observational probes of “dark energy,” the mysterious energy form that is causing the expansion of the universe to accelerate over time.
Akron team leverages supercomputers to better understand tie molecules
Columbus, Ohio (Oct. 5, 2011) –A special configuration of carbon atoms – a cylindrical network of molecules known as carbon nanotubes – is attracting a great deal of attention from industry researchers these days.
Ohio Supercomputer Center powers computer simulations of cyanobacteria
Columbus, Ohio (Jan. 25, 2012) – Blue-green algae is causing havoc in Midwestern lakes saturated with agricultural run-off, but researchers in a northwest Ohio lab are using supercomputers to study a closely related strain of the toxic cyanobacteria to harness its beneficial properties.
Practitioners combine IT, biology to tackle deluge of scientific data
Columbus, Ohio (June 10, 2010) – Researchers, educators and students from government, industry and universities across Ohio and the Midwest will be converging on Columbus next week to discuss bioinformatics, the relatively young field of scientific study that combines information technology and the biological sciences.
Both work at national level to promote modeling, simulation accessibility
The National Computational Science Institute (NCSI) will offer an introductory workshop entitled, "Introduction to Computational Science Modeling and Simulation in the Undergraduate Environment." The workshop will be held on June 16-22 at OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center), located on The Ohio State University campus.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), along with three state medical centers, has received $350,000 for pediatric cancer research as part of the federal FY2004 Omnibus Appropriations bill.
This grant will be used to apply new techniques developed at the National Cancer Institute's Advanced Biomedical Computing Center (NCI-ABCC) to the study of children's diseases. Research results will accelerate the insight and understanding of cancer, leading to improved diagnostics, treatments and even new prevention options.
Columbus, Ohio - April 9, 2001-- A Johns Hopkins scientist recognized as one of the world's foremost experts in high performance computing has been recruited to give The Ohio State University College of Medicine and Public Health and OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) a leadership role in the new and rapidly expanding field of medical informatics.Dr. Joel H.
