San Diego, Home of SDSC, Featured in National Geographic Documentary "World's Smart Cities: San Diego"

Saturday, April 25, 2015 – Check your local listing on the National Geographic Channel

San Diegans who tout their city as "America's Finest" have been known to get called out on that claim. But when National Geographic ranks the region among the world's “smart cities," it's hard to argue the point. If a book really can be judged by its cover, San Diego's scenic beauty is a great start to the story. All well and good. Truth be told, however, it’s what’s springing from the minds of geniuses -- and the power of business an industry – that’s now putting this city on...

XSEDE Resource Stampede Supercomputer of TACC Simulated Molecular Dynamics in Design of Engineered Protein

For the first time, scientists recreated the biological function of substrate transportation across the cell membranes by computationally designing a transporter protein. The designed protein, dubbed Rocker, was shown to transport ions across the membrane, a process crucial to cell and organismal survival in various functions, such as nutrient intake, efflux of waste or drug, and cell signaling, for instance, between nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. "To our knowledge, this is the first transport protein designed from scratch - that is, it didn't exist in nature beforehand," said ...

SUNDAY’S BIRTHDAY WISHES - Moore's Law at 50: The Past and Future

Scientific American

Moore's Law, which has provided a guideline to maker cheaper, smaller and faster computers, endures even after 50 years

When you're strapping on the latest smart watch or ogling an iPhone, you probably aren't thinking of Moore's Law, which for 50 years has been used as a blueprint to make computers smaller, cheaper and faster.  Without Moore's Law it's quite possible that new types of computers like Microsoft'NHoloLens, a holographic wearable with which users can interact with floating images, would not have been developed. For decade...
