Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists will try to predict how the supercomputers of the future will perform under a three-year, $4.2-million grant recently awarded by the research arm of the U.S. Department of Defense.
IBM announced that the University at Buffalo (UB) Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics, The State University of New York, will use IBM technologies and research expertise to study the structure and behavior of human proteins.
Off-the-shelf compute power allows optimized data transfer Jeremy Walton, Jason Wood and Ken Brodlie The use of visualization as a tool for the understanding and analysis of numerical datasets (particularly those that are large, complicated or time-dependent) has been well-established for some time.
Pattern seeking with neural networks and representative democracies Bill Weaver, Ph.D. The conversion of raw inputs into meaningful output is the primary objective of the data acquisition and analysis process.
For those wishing some quick graphics, or just quick and dirty calculations of anything from simple arithmetic to differential equations, this may be the way to go. As a long-time user of HP's venerable 48GX as well as TI's 83 plus (I'm a calculation junkie and love to compare products) it never ceases to amaze me as to the capabilities of each new generation of hand calculators.
A number of intelligent programs are available for different operating systems John R. Joyce, Ph.D. With the proliferation of digital cameras and flash memory drives, instances of data loss in these devices is becoming more frequent. This column recently took a look at disk undelete utilities.
Moving toward open multi-vendor data exchange and archiving standards Tony Davies, Maren Fiege and Mark Harnois In recent years, there has been an increasing amount of interest in data mining, data longevity, data exchange and data archiving.
The CDS of the future will accommodate real-world business needs Soheil Saadat, Ph.D. Chromatography Data Systems (CDS) represent one of the earliest implementations of computing technology in the laboratory.
As more companies focus attention on protecting the "lifecycle" of data, customers for the first time will have choices Scott Deutsch The market for scientific data management began to mature in 2003 in ways that will dramatically benefit the entire laboratory and research community.
There is much more to becoming compliant than simply upgrading your software Stuart M. Miller, Msc. The compliance readiness of the latest versions of commercially available chromatography data systems (CDS) has improved dramatically over the past few years.
Spam is killing us all, and the true pessimists of the world are claiming that e-mail is doomed because of spam. I don't agree for a lot of reasons, but I sure as hell do agree that our friends comprising The 108th Congress of the United States of America had a serious lapse of logic when they passed the "CAN-SPAM Act" recently.
A boon for drug discovery John H. Begemann, Ph.D. Pharmaceutical discovery companies encounter numerous roadblocks between concept and commercialization. Chemistry-based drug firms, in particular, process large numbers of compounds in their search for new drugs.
Randy C. Hice, President, Laboratory Expertise Center, Inc. Misfires in program management on large LIMS projects can cause similar catastrophes, although the physical stress is more of the 'VP-wants-to-know-why-the-project-is-late' variety.
LabWare's Whole Product Approach With Goal Oriented LIMS Delivery (GOLD) Methodology Brings Consistent SuccessJanuary 31, 2004 7:00 pm | Articles | Comments
Vance V. Kershner, President, LabWare, Inc. One of the key reasons for LabWare's success is the company's understanding that the product is not represented by software alone.
Disaster planning a must Randy C. Hice Gore may have been a nickname for our former Vice President, but it is also the name of the no-man's-land where two lanes merge into one another. I was running a little late as I pointed my company car toward Atlanta's Hartsfield airport.
