Identifying Cancer DNA Changes with XSEDE/PSC Resources

The scientific field of bioinformatics has for the past five years relied on increasingly larger data sets for new and innovative research. With few in the field trained in computer science, many groups, like the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, have turned to XSEDE for help. Read More

Bridges & CMU Take AI Research to the Next Level

HOOKED UP

A common way for proteins to hold themselves together is with disulfide bridges. But scientists don’t completely understand why some proteins need them to “hook up” their structure. Researchers used the DESRES Anton system hosted at PSC to discover the critical role disulfides play in holding together MCoTI-II, a natural pesticide that would fall apart without disulfide bridges.

GUT CHECK

While diabetes poses many life- and limb-threatening problems, it also causes serious changes and problems in the digestive tract. A study using PSC’s Bridges system sifted through the DNA of thousands of microbe species in the healthy and diabetic intestines to learn how to help reduce digestive symptoms—and maybe even slow the course of the disease.
