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.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center has received a $300,000 federal grant to work with a ceramics manufacturer and university experts to apply advanced modeling and simulation to the company’s operations as a way to boost its competitive advantage.
Officials from the Ohio Supercomputer Center and Nimbis Services unveiled an e-commerce service that allows companies to easily purchase OSC's Blue Collar Computing computational and expertise resources via Nimbis' web portal packages.
The University System of Ohio is soon to be a global hub for online medical education and videoconferencing following a decision to fund the creation of a resource center in Columbus.
The U.S. manufacturing sector received a boost as it transitions to a globally competitive marketplace under a new Senate bill introduced today. The legislation will take the same supercomputing systems and applications used almost exclusively by Fortune 500 companies and make them scalable, accessible and affordable to small and medium-sized companies.
A revolutionary design project developed by the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) and OSC was recently featured in the widely-read magazine, Metropolis.
In its August/September issue, the magazine spotlighted the Virtual Sketch Project, which allows design students to "create" an interior space around them, immersing them in a virtual environment and resulting in a digital model of space. The tool is featured in the magazine's nod to "21 Great Design Ideas for the 21st Century," published in celebration of the periodical's 21st anniversary.
Hang Liu, an Ohio University physics and astronomy graduate student, received the OSC/SGI Outstanding Graduate Student Award at the OSC/SUG Graduate Student Conference on August 12, 2001. Graduate students from various Ohio universities displayed their research in a series of thoughtful and interesting papers, presentations and poster sessions.
For the past 12 years, OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) has made a place for itself in the world of high performance networking and computing. This year will be no exception when OSC showcases recent projects at Supercomputing 2000 (SC2000), an annual week-long national supercomputing conference. SC2000 will be held at the Dallas Convention Center in Texas on November 4-10.
On March 26, 1998, the Ohio Supercomputer Center, OhioLINK, and OSC Networking will sponsor a one-day conference on digital libraries. The session will enable representatives from Ohio's higher education institutions and industry to share ideas on digital library research and form working groups that could pursue opportunities for network experiments using the current infrastructure and possible funded research. Faculty, technical staff, and industry personnel with interests in digital libraries are expected to attend.
