The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) has announced that it has succeeded in calculating the electron state of a giant molecule comprised of more than 20,000 atoms.
The Grid Technology Research Center and the Research Institute for Computational Sciences, both AIST organizations, have jointly calculated the electron density of the membrane protein complex of Rhodopseudomonas viridis, a kind of photosynthetic purple bacteria, using the AIST SuperCluster, AIST's proprietary cluster computer.
AIST expects that this achievement will help elucidate the microscopic mechanism of photosynthesis.
AIST reported the finding at the SC05 Conference held in Seattle in November, and received the Best Technical Paper Award for the achievement.
10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience. Nicole and David look at the evolution of HPC, today's big data challenges, discuss real world solutions, and reveal their predictions. Exactly what does the future holds for HPC?
