Now open: Neocortex Call for Proposals!

PSC is accepting proposals until November 5 for its exciting new AI machine Neocortex. Apply today to access the remarkable integrated technologies of the Cerebras CS-1 and the HPE Superdome Flex Servers. 

Staff Spotlight: Roberto Gomez

Roberto is a Senior Computational Science Consultant in the User Support group. His background is computational physics but will wrangle and install any software that a user requires, from Anaconda to Zoltan.

PSC Superpower: If I can’t install it for you, you probably don’t want to use it.

PSC Celebrates its 35th Anniversary

Simulations Explain Mechanism for Loading DNA into Virus

Using simulations on PSC’s Anton 2, a collaboration of scientists across the U.S. showed how five copies of the ATPase protein making up the motor in the asccϕ28 virus may store chemical energy for a coordinated shove to push viral DNA into the capsid.

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is a joint computational research center with Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. PSC provides university, government and industrial researchers with access to several of the most powerful systems for high-performance computing, communications and data storage available to scientists and engineers nationwide for unclassified research. PSC advances the state of the art in high-performance computing, communications and data analytics and offers a flexible environment for solving the largest and most challenging problems in research.

PSC Coronavirus Updates

With the nation—and the world—disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) would like to offer our wishes for safety and health for all. To do our part in protecting the country’s wellbeing, we have been working with a national alliance of high-performance computing resources called the COVID-19 HPC Consortium.
