To better understand the biological processes that govern lipid raft formation—processes with broad implications for research ranging from how cells regulate proteins to how viruses invade healthy human cells—ORNL researchers are using two world-class research facilities to study the presence and formation of these nanoscale lipid patches.
In 2012, a team led by ORNL’s Ramie Wilkerson began establishing a process to discover and archive publications more efficiently in collaboration with OLCF leadership and ORNL’s Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate data analytics experts.
Forge, a combination of the Allinea DDT and MAP software tools, will continue to provide users at the OLCF with the debugging capability of DDT while adding the MAP software.
The OLCF will support a new service, Spark On-Demand, that enables users to instantiate Apache Spark to conduct in situ data analysis on OLCF compute resources.
A multi-institution team has been using Titan to create the largest fully-coupled simulation of the universe’s Epoch of Reionization.
Ongoing upgrades to the OLCF’s data storage services are expanding users’ opportunities to extract science from large datasets.
Optimizing compute jobs based on these separate and combined streams of information, however, can be challenging. Fortunately for staff and users at the OLCF, a new tool called the Grand Unified Information Directory for the OLCF (GUIDO) has been developed to enhance existing capabilities.
Boeing used the Jaguar supercomputer, aiming to establish more reliable computational methods for estimating high-lift (takeoff/landing) characteristics for its commercial transport aircraft.
