Ohio Supercomputer Center Employees Published in Online Plant Physiology Journal

Four Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) employees, as well as two Ohio State University (OSU) plant biology researchers, had a manuscript published in the online journal, Plant Physiology. The manuscript was entitled, “Genome-wide Identification of Arabidopsis Coiled-coil Proteins and Establishment of the ARABI-COIL Database.”

OSC Aids Ohio State Chemists in Determining Nature of Ice

Chemists at The Ohio State University and their colleagues may have settled a 70-year-old scientific debate on the fundamental nature of ice.

A new statistical analysis mechanical theory has confirmed what some scientists only suspected before: that under the right conditions, molecules of water can freeze together in just the right way to form a perfect crystal. And once frozen, that ice can be manipulated by electric fields in the same way that magnets respond to magnetic fields.

Biomedical Applications Simulations

As advanced simulations integrate increasingly larger data sets, it is essential to explore the use of high performance computing to assure tractable methods of investigating computational data. As these data combine information from multiple sources, it is important to research advanced interface technology and develop more intuitive methods for interaction with large and complex multimodal data sets. Advanced intuitive interfaces are needed to integrate these vast amounts of multisensory data into a single coherent simulation.

Computational Science Education Expert from Capital University Joins Regents, Supercomputer Center on Statewide Project

Columbus, Ohio -- June 13, 2005-- A Capital University professor has been recruited by the Ohio Board of Regents and the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) to set their statewide computational science program in motion.

Ignatios Vakalis, professor of mathematics and computer science and executive director of the Center of Computational Studies at Capital University, will serve as coordinator for undergraduate education for the Statewide Initiative for Computational Science and also will be appointed as OSC senior fellow.
