UC San Diego Unveiling the Universe’s Earliest Secrets

It's the faintest light, yet it carries information from the beginning of time. A telescope trained on the Antarctic sky has picked up swirling patterns of light believed to be the imprint of the violent expansion of the universe a trillionth of a second after it burst into being. Excitement swept the scientific community following the March 17 announcement, tempered by caution. If the signal is real, the discovery is the first evidence of an idea proposed three decades ago and possibly worthy of a Nobel Prize. But before any prizes are awarded, the finding must be confirmed by another in...

Register Today - NCSA Blue Waters Symposium for Petascale Science and Beyond

May 12-15, 2014 – Champaign, Illinois

Science teams from across the nation use Blue Waters to simulate the evolution of the cosmos, delve into fine-scale processes in molecular dynamics and quantum physics, and solve many research challenges in between. Many of these projects require a large portion of the hundreds of thousands of processors that constitute Blue Waters and would be difficult or impossible to run elsewhere. Hosted by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), this symposium will bring together these leaders in petascale computat...

North Carolina State’s Computational Tool Offers New Insight Into Key Biological Processes

A new computational tool could give scientists a better understanding of the functional units critical to the performance of the biochemical pathways that govern biological processes. Developed by researchers from North Carolina State University (NCSU), the algorithm can identify which metabolites, biochemical reactions, and enzymes are related to each other, group them into functional modules, and identify whether an individual component plays a role in multiple modules. The algorithm also characterizes how the relationships between different modules and individual components may change ...

Facebook Feelings Are Contagious, UC San Diego Study Shows

University of California, San Diego (UCSD) researchers analyzed more than a billion anonymized status updates among more than 100 million Facebook users in the United States and found that positive posts encouraged positive posts and negative posts produced negative ones, with the positive posts being more influential, or more contagious. "Our study suggests that people are not just choosing other people like themselves to associate with but actually causing their friends' emotional expressions to change," says UCSD professor James Fowler. "We have enough power in this data set to show th...
