TACC Ranger Wrangles Computational Biology

Inside HPC points us to this story on computational biology work being done on the Sun-powered TACC Ranger supercomputer:
“Grishin is pursuing this “unsolved problem” of protein structure prediction using Ranger— one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers — at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). His computations have led to new insights on protein activity, potential disease cures, and a deeper understanding of how humans evolved into such complex creatures.” Full Story


About Rich
