Researchers at Michigan State University use TACC supercomputers to understand DNA bending and repair mechanisms The biological information that makes us unique is encoded in our DNA. DNA damage is a natural biological occurrence that happens every time cells divide and multiply. External factors such as overexposure to sunlight can also damage DNA. Understanding how the human body recognizes damaged DNA and initiates repair fascinates Michael Feig, professor of biochemistry and...

TACC supercomputers help microfluidics researchers make waves at the microscopic level Have you ever noticed the way water flows around boulders in a fast-moving river, creating areas of stillness and intense motion? What if those forces of fluid flow could be controlled at the smallest levels? In May 2013, researchers from UCLA, Iowa State and Princeton reported results in Nature Communications about a new way of sculpting tailor-made fluid flows by placing tiny pillars in microfluidic...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com [ Watch the Video: The Birth of a Planet Simulation ] Planetary researchers have a new tool in their artillery when trying to hunt for extrasolar planets. Scientists can now use simulated models developed by a group of scientists of how planets are born, helping the hunt for extrasolar planets. Planets generally form when a molecular cloud collapses into a young star. As the leftover gas and dust form a disk around the star, the particulates inside...

Simulations by UC Santa Barbara researchers improve understanding of plaque formation and suggest new diagnostic and treatment options Alzheimer's disease is one of the most dreaded and debilitating illnesses one can develop. Currently, the disease afflicts 6.5 million Americans and the Alzheimer's Association projects it to increase to between 11 and 16 million, or 1 in 85 people, by 2050. Cell death in the brain causes one to grow forgetful, confused and, eventually, catatonic....
