Kelly Gaither, Brian McAnn, and Matthew Vaughn from the Texas Advanced Computing Center will co-teach an innovative new course at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory December 1 - 10, 2016 aimed at jump-starting use of immersive, interactive visualization in biology.
The HPC policy committee has set the retirement date for the Helium HPC system on October 1, 2016. The system is likely to be run a few weeks longer than this due to unforeseen delays in the purchasing process for the new HPC cluster, Argon. Further updates on timeline will be made as they are available. Additional information related to the retirement is as follows:
Rivers are everywhere in Iowa. A network of 3 million water pathways negotiates the state’s landscape, with a half million of them carrying water at any given time.

University of Iowa neuroscientists are using high-performance computing (HPC) to study changes in the brains of Huntington disease (HD) patients before they begin to experience symptoms.
Uterine cancer is the fourth most common cancer among women, and the most common gynecological cancer. Researchers at the University of Iowa are using high-performance computing (HPC) to investigate how a tumor develops in normal uterine epithelium.
