Mu-Hyun Baik, an associate professor of chemistry and informatics at Indiana University (IU), created a high-resolution simulation of the amyloid-ß protein. The amyloid-ß protein is widely believed to be the cause of Alzheimer's disease. Working with TeraGrid staff, Baik's amyloid-ß protein analysis was achieved using the National Science Foundation-supported Data Capacitor, a TeraGrid resource developed at IU, and IU's Big Red supercomputer. Baik used a Lustre wide-area file system to manage the massive volumes of data produced by his computational experiments, an approach that was largely untested at the time. Credit: Indiana University
