Photosynthesis is one of the most important processes on Earth, essential to the existence of much life on our planet. But for all its importance, scientists still do not understand some of the small-scale processes of how plants absorb light.
CARDIOPROOF aims to ascertain the applicability and effectiveness of predictive modeling and simulation tools for cardiology, validating them in interrelated clinical trials conducted in three European centers of excellence in cardiac treatment.
To find out what bees are eating, scientists count grains of pollen and process millions of DNA sequences — a rather slow process. Supercomputers and the metabarcoding method simplify these tasks, helping scientists to enhance the landscapes of these all-important pollinators.
Some say it's turtles all the way down, but a new genomic analysis by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania employed XSEDE supercomputers to find some surprising divergences in the turtle family tree.
Galaxies grow by absorbing other stellar masses, with trails of stars tracing the future and past orbits of satellite galaxies consumed. Understanding how these tidal streams evolve will help measure the Milky Way's gravitational field and the shape of its dark matter halo.
Open scholarship is important for an open society and has the power to improve lives across the globe. However, achieving this vision may require rethinking the e-infrastructures used for conducting research and disseminating results.
