A team of computational scientists from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign used the Titan supercomputer to model one of life’s ubiquitous molecular motors.
To better understand lignin, a problematic molecule for next-generation biofuel production, a team from ORNL created one of the largest biomolecular simulations to date—a 23.7-million atom system representing pretreated biomass in the presence of enzymes.
A team led by Klaus Schulten of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign used Titan to achieve a milestone in the field of biomolecular simulation, modeling a complete photosynthetic organelle of the bacteria Rhodobacter sphaeroides in atomic detail.
A team led by ORNL’s Jeremy Smith, the director of ORNL’s Center for Molecular Biophysics and a Governor’s Chair at the University of Tennessee, has uncovered information that could help others harvest energy from plant mass.
Using computational molecular dynamics simulations, researchers at ORNL and the University of Tennessee–ORNL Joint Institute for Computational Sciences have discovered a molecular “switch” in a receptor that controls cell behavior.
