Can we afford more INCITEful spending? on Jan 29, 2010 in Science, Technology, Distributed ComputingThe DOE's INCITE program awarded 1.6bln CPU hours to 69 researchers. With a $400,000,000 pricetag, do you feel taxpayers are making an investment worth the interest on the debt? Taking the government out of the picture makes ten times more computing...



When Blue Waters aren't wet. on Dec 14, 2009 in Science, Technology, Distributed Computinghttp://DeepSci.com/blogBlue Waters is a supercomputer that will be used to tackle research challenges in proteomics, genomics, modeling of macromolecular complex structures and others that simply cannot be performed on any other available computing r...



Protein folding is no bologna on Dec 7, 2009 in Distributed ComputingWhen we hear the word protein, most of us think "lunch!", but proteins within the body effect your health, and the health of many disease cells you may be harboring. The H1N1 (and flu virus in any given year) is essentially just a few minor protein c...



Gen-x will need 10x (the computing power) on Dec 5, 2009 in Distributed ComputingIt is my perception that researchers are increasingly adopting computer modeling and simulation in their work. And as communities get more familiar with their respective tools of the day, the next generation of tools is going to require 10 times more...
