Computers as Biochemistry Microscopes

Dr. Wei Yang

Biochemists have long dreamed of using computer simulations to provide an atomic level view of complex biochemical systems. These simulations would act like a microscope to reveal complex biochemical interactions. Many well-known supercomputers, including IBM's "Blue Gene" and "Anton" at DE Shaw Research, were architected specifically to achieve that application.

Studying the Effects of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

Dr. Steve Morey, COAPS

The ability to collect, store and analyze vast amounts of data is a major challenge in the field of oceanographic studies. Dr. Steve Morey, a physical oceanographer at the Florida State University Center for Ocean and Atmospheric Prediction Studies (COAPS), is very familiar with issues in conducting research at such a scale.
