HIAPER Takes to the Skies for its First Science Mission

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | News | Comments

On March 2, the nation's most-advanced research aircraft took flight on its first science mission. For two months ending on April 30, 2006, scientists aboard will study a severe type of atmospheric turbulence that forms near mountains and endangers planes flying in the vicinity…


Computer Simulation to Identify the Best Molecules

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | News | Comments

Duke University theoretical chemists are investigating a new computer method that could help scientists identify the best molecules for drugs, electronic devices or an array of other uses. Their method would address the "daunting" fact that "there aren't enough atoms…


Going Deep

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | by Bill Weaver, Ph.D. | Articles | Comments

A new algorithm for robotic vision   Bill Weaver, Ph.D. Cruising around in my Nissan 350Z with the ground-effect neon thumping to the soundtrack, or careening around curves at over 170 MPH in my V12 Aston Martin DB9, are high on the short list of things that assuage my daily commute amid snarled traffic in the real world. In a relatively short period of time, the hefty cathode ray tube in our family room has been transformed from the keyhole view...


Grid and cluster computing for radiotherapy

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | by Dr. P.W. Chin, Dr. D.G. Lewis and J.P. Giddy | Articles | Comments

Monte Carlo simulations bring much-needed accuracy to benefit cancer patients Dr. P.W. Chin, Dr. D.G. Lewis and J.P. Giddy Each year, over 11 million people are diagnosed with cancer, and seven million die of the disease. Radiation therapy, surgery, or a combination of the two, are able to cure about a third of these cases. Computer simulation of radiation transport is very useful for radiotherapy, both in research and in clinical routines,...


Heterogeneous Processing with Increased User Productivity

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | Articles | Comments

Maximizing your return from parallel computing Ilya Mirman Scientists and engineers in virtually every field are turning to high-performance computing (HPC) to solve some of today’s most important and complex problems. With simulation replacing physical testing, more complex phenomena being modeled, and whole products or systems being simulated, technical computing...


Breaking the High-throughput Bottleneck

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | by Katrina M. Waters, Ph.D.; Mudita Singhal; Bobbie-Jo M. Webb-Robertson, Ph.D.; Eric G. Stephan; Julie M. Gephart | Articles | Comments

New tools help biologists integrate complex datasets Katrina M. Waters, Ph.D.; Mudita Singhal; Bobbie-Jo M. Webb-Robertson, Ph.D.; Eric G. Stephan; Julie M. Gephart It's not your high school biology lab. Today's burgeoning field of systems biology takes researchers away from traditional one-gene-at-a-time bench experiments in favor of combining technologies from fields such as genomics, mass spectrometry, imaging and informatics to advance their...


Scrub That Disk Clean! A little conscientious use can really pay off

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | by John R. Joyce, Ph.D. | Blogs | Comments

We have previously addressed how files are stored on disk media, with particular emphasis on systems running the MS Windows and DOS operating systems. As you may recall, at that time we were particularly interested in recovering files that had been deleted or were lost due to disk corruption errors. We were able to do this because these systems did not actually delete the files when you clicked “Delete” or dragged them to the recycle bin.


A Real Cliff Hanger: The high cost of saving money

February 28, 2006 7:00 pm | by Randy C. Hice | Blogs | Comments

The most expensive choice you will ever make Randy C. Hice Lessons are good, lessons are safe, and lessons are wise. I wish I could sometimes be as convincing when I see “bail-out projects.” This is when you get the call that a customer has been implementing an informatics project and things have gone woefully wrong. In every case I’ve seen in the past six or eight years, the root cause came down to money
