Internet2 and NSF Announce Selection of First-Phase Research Proposals for Exploring Clouds for Acceleration of Science (E-CAS) Project

Internet2 and the National Science Foundation (NSF) confirmed the selection of six proposals for the first phase of the Exploring Clouds for Acceleration of Science (E-CAS) project that was first  announced in November 2018.  The E-CAS project comprises two phases of NSF-funded, campus-based research that will be supported in part through contributions from Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud to produce a deeper understanding of the use of cloud computing in accelerating...

Science Node Article: What is dark life?

In this Science Node article, Mark Miller, SGCI Steering Committee member and biochemist at the University of California, San Diego, discusses organisms that are not visible to the human eye and that cannot be cultured. These organisms, referred to as dark life, are now being studied using new techniques in DNA analysis combined with advanced computing power, also known as 'the computational microscope." Unsurprisingly, these new techniques produce a lot of data to analyze, which can present...

CIPRES Science Gateway: Exploring Evolutionary Relationships

CyberInfrastructure for Phylogenetic RESearch (CIPRES), is a gateway that launched in 2009 at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego that allows researchers to explore evolutionary connections among species. The gateway provides a sophisticated set of software tools and high-performance computers that would be too costly and difficult for individual researchers to create. It allows phylogenetic researchers to compare DNA sequences and predict common ancestors among plants and...
