Preserving pollinator communities through simulations

With a focus on plant and pollinator species, Colin Campbell, associate professor of physics at the University of Mount Union, studies how these groups interact with one another. Some interactions are mutualistic, where both species benefit, but other interactions are only beneficial for one species. The net effect of many interactions can result in stable or unstable communities, which can be modeled as networks. 

OSC’s fall SUG conference unites users virtually

The Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) Statewide Users Group (SUG) Conference on Thursday, Oct. 7, brought researchers from around the state together virtually. Through Zoom, attendees learned about OSC’s latest services and resources and heard flash talks about research that utilizes the Center’s high performance computing (HPC) capabilities. 

The conference emphasized the many ways attendees can engage with OSC beyond SUG meetings. OSC staff highlighted how researchers can make use of available services, learn more about OSC’s impact and help shape future plans. 

Enhancing genetic research

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). 

Maximizing efficiency in automotive engineering

Efficiency and accuracy are everything in motorsports. Finely tuned engineering workflows must operate on demanding timelines and reliably deliver aerodynamically optimized vehicles. Automotive and industrial company D2H Advanced Technologies relies on the Ohio Supercomputer Center’s (OSC) on-demand high performance computing (HPC) for maximum efficiency in both process and product.
