The Remote Data Analysis and Visualization Center at UT’s National Institute for Computational Sciences has enhanced the web interface to a system that allows researchers to interact with sophisticated data about locations and relationships of life species across geographical areas. The improvements were built out of a pilot study project involving species distribution modeling in the Great Smoky Mountains National.
Nautilus, the supercomputer at the heart of UT’s Remote Data Analysis and Visualization Center, has recently been upgraded. Researchers all over the United States use the supercomputer for visualizing and analyzing data sets in ways that are not possible on smaller systems.
An article co-authored by UT’s Joint Institute of Computational Sciences and oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers has earned recognition from IOP Science. The article conveys details of the research team’s investigation of a physics-based method of DNA sequencing, which is intended to read the hereditary traits coded in human DNA.
The National Institute for Computational Sciences, home to the Kraken supercomputer, has named Gregory Peterson as its new project director.
