IU Co-Leads Project to Help Researchers Explore Big Data in HathiTrust Digitized Library

Illinois English professor Ted Underwood wants to know how the language describing male and female characters in works of fiction has changed since the late 18th century. He’s using data-mining tools to gather information from thousands of books to answer that question. The problem, though, is that books published after 1922 are still under copyright protection and their content can’t be shared freely online. "There are hundreds of thousands of books out there, and we don’t talk about them," Underwood said. "That ...

SDSC Gordon Supercomputer Used to Test Compounds for Uncoupler ActivitiesA

Antibiotic resistance has been called one of the world’s most pressing health problems, with some studies suggesting that, absent major improvements in drug discovery, by 2050 more individuals will die from drug-resistant bacterial infections than cancer. To help stem this nightmare scenario, a team of researchers – with the aid of the Gordon supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center based at UC San Diego – has identified a class of possible antibiotics with the potential to disable previously drug-resistant bacteria. In essence, these new agen...

ORNL Receives ARPA-E Funding for Transformational Energy Technology

The Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory will participate in three research projects that have been awarded $10.2 million in funding from DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy. The funding will be used to develop new alloys, membranes and batteries for energy applications. ORNL received the competitive awards from ARPA-E’s OPEN 2015 program, which serves as an open call to scientists and engineers for transformational technologies outside the scope of ARPA-E’s existing focused programs. Through both open and focused solicitations, ARPA-E funds technologies...

SDSC’s ‘Comet’ Supercomputer Blazing Trails via Science Gateways

Just six months after coming online, Comet, the new petascale supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, is already blazing new paths of discovery, thanks in part to its role as a primary resource for an assortment of science gateways that provide scientists across many research domains with easy access to its computing power. Simply described, science gateways provide web browser access to applications and data used by specific research communities. Gateways make it possible to run the available applications on supercomputers su...
