The Team Behind IODP, an SGCI Client, Explore Iceland's Mantle Convection and Climate

The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) is an international marine research collaboration that explores Earth's history and dynamics using ocean-going research platforms to recover data recorded in seafloor sediments and rocks and to monitor subseafloor environments.  Scientist Leah LeVay of IODP is on an expedition through August 6, 2021, to discover more about our Earth's mantle in Iceland. You can follow along on her adventure as a staff scientist by...

Article Discussing FAIR Principles Includes SGCI Client Hydroshare

As an expert in vision science, neuroinformatics, brain imaging, computational neuroscience, and data science, Franco Pestilli's research has advanced the understanding of human cognition and brain networks over the last 15 years. Pestilli participated in Gateway Focus Week in 2019 to help grow his Brainlife.io platform.  Learn about Pestilli and Brainlife.io in this recent article from XSEDE .

SGCI Client and Focus Week Participant CoMSES.Net Paves Way for FAIR Models

Around this time last year, in May 2020, West Hub affiliate Michael Barton and colleagues published an open letter in  Science  that urged worldwide scientists to share their COVID-19 models and openly publish their code so that it was Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable ( FAIR ). While it’s difficult to prove that this letter stimulated epidemiologists to make their work more transparent, the year 2020 brought more than 56,000 unique visitors to Barton’s social and...

Students Use Simvascular Gateway to Create Image-Based Anatomic Models and Blood Flow Simulations

We recently came across an exciting gateway-related Tweet in our feed and just had to share it with the SGCI community. Using the Simvascular gateway, students in Alison Marsden 's class at Stanford created image-based anatomic models and ran blood flow simulations. Check out the beautiful results below! 

Zooniverse Project Uses Fisheries Data to Model Impact of Climate Change

Zooniverse allows anyone across the world to become citizen scientists and participate in research under the guidance of research professionals. The powerful platform hosts numerous projects that require data collection and curation, leading to impactful scientific research.  One recent project, led by Andrea Thomer, assistant professor at the University of Michigan School of Information, uses Zooniverse to digitize archival fisheries data in order to model the impact of...

Science Node Article "A data puzzle" Features Gateways 2020 Presentation

High-quality computer infrastructures and resources are being used to help advance Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) research. Rob Quick —  associate director of the  Cyberinfrastructure Integration Research Center (CIRC)  at Indiana University and  presenter at the Gateways 2020  — is featured in this Science Node article discussing the disease, the field’s data distribution challenges, and the resources that are providing new hope for a...

SGCI Client CERA Uses Frontera Supercomputer for Storm Surge Forecasts

Hurricane season is behind us now, but the important work of tracking storm surge forecasts continues. Results of storm simulations generated by several supercomputers, including Frontera at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, are fed to CERA (Coastal Emergency Risks Assessment) , an interactive web mapper, where they are then converted into a visual map and annotated with useful information. This can be, for instance, real-time tide and river gauge data to show how forecasts...

Neuroscience Gateway Will Grow Capabilities With New Awards

By Nayiri Mullinix The Neuroscience Gateway (NSG) has been serving the computational neuroscience community since 2013. With over 1,100 users as of April 2020, the NSG was designed to fulfill the needs of those analyzing large scale brain models to learn about various neuronal functions and more. Two recent awards from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health will allow a growing group of researchers to utilize the NSG. Most of this modeling has been done...
