In the relatively new field of epigenetics, technological advances have enabled researchers to ask ever more detailed questions about the behavior of genes. The complexities of the systems under study are always increasing.

Capturing the important physics of interactions adds layers of complexity that can be computationally expensive. Read about the physics of DNA and proteins and how high-performance computing brings it to life.


Striving to become the go-to place for digital research services, XSEDE held its second annual conference in July in San Diego, CA, US. From elementary students to seasoned scientists, XSEDE13 offered something for everyone, including a day dedicated to biosciences.

Read about sustainability goals of the XSEDE project, including playing host to a variety of reserach services and tools, preparing the next generation of research and computer scientists, and continuing to deliver the same unmatched level of support the research community has come to expect.
