With the aid of cloud computing clusters, Cornell researchers were able to predict where bad mutations are likely to occur. Genetic editing will remove these harmful mutations and allow breeders to continue increasing yield gains.</p> 40013 Wed, 15 Apr 2015 08:45:59 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed HPC is good for university business http://www.isgtw.org/spotlight/hpc-good-university-business <p> Buying a supercomputer can be a tough sell for administrators to make. A study by Clemson University researchers may change the argument.</p> 40014 Wed, 15 Apr 2015 08:45:59 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed An ecosystem for digital social innovation http://www.isgtw.org/visualization/ecosystem-digital-social-innovation 39792 Wed, 15 Apr 2015 08:46:30 GMT iSGTW RSS Feed
