SGCI Client and Bootcamp Alumni Launches Social Media Macroscope

Joe Yun, a participant of the very first Science Gateways Bootcamp in April 2017 , has announced the launch of his new gateway, Social Media Macroscope. In the blog he recently published on Medium , Yun not only invites people to start using the gateway but also explains the reasons why people might want to use it and the gap it serves.  Yun has been active in the SGCI community and is currently engaging with our Extended Developer Support consultants to...

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...

Citizen Scientists on Zooniverse Project "Exoplanet Explorers" Help Find New World

By Nayiri Mullinix "This discovery of a planet in the habitable zone of its star is so exciting for the Zooniverse and our volunteers. It was made possible by the efforts of volunteers on Exoplanet Explorers, the project that has followed on from the success of the original Zooniverse planet-finding project, Planet Hunters." Grant Miller, Zooniverse Community Manager Scientists needed one final piece of evidence to declare K2-288Bb a new planet, and they recently got that...

Science Node article "One-stop data shop" highlights the work of Bootcamp alumni

We recently reported that Carol Song of Purdue University and four co-PIs, including Jack Smith of Marshall University, were awarded a five-year, $4.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation. Both Song and Smith participated in SGCI’s  Science Gateways Bootcamps  while working on separate gateway projects. The grant will allow the team to build a “plug and play” platform, called GeoEDF, that will give researchers the ability to easily access and process geospatial...

Gateways 2018 Keynote Mercé Crosas featured in Science Node Article "A transparent Dataverse"

Mercè Crosas of the Dataverse Project, which is an open-source repository from  Harvard's Institute for Quantitative Social Sciences , has been featured in an article by Science Node. The interview with Crosas featured in the article (copied below) took place at the  Gateways 2018  conference in Austin, TX., where she gave one of the keynotes, " Addressing the next challenges in data sharing with Dataverse ."  A transparent Dataverse How eliminating false...

A Recent Study Identifies nanoHUB as Top Computational Materials Science Resource

nanoHUB , a science gateway that has provided resources to the nanotechnology community for more than fifteen years, is known for its well-curated collection of education modules, teaching materials, and computational simulation tools. A recent study identified this popular destination for students and educators as the most familiar and widely used resource for Computational Materials Science and Engineering (CMSE) education in the United States. The distinction is based on data...

Science Node Article "Hawai'i H20" Features SGCI Client ‘Ike Wai

The ‘Ike Wai gateway, which is a platform dedicated to ensuring Hawai’i’s water security through research, education, and community engagement, has been featured in an article by Science Node. The interview with Sean Cleveland featured in the article (copied below) took place at the  Gateways 2018  conference in Austin, TX. ‘Ike Wai is an  SGCI client , and project team members were participants in the May 2018  Science Gateways Bootcamp .  Hawai'i H2O ...

SGCI congratulates Bootcamp alumni on their recent $4.5 million NSF award

By Nayiri Mullinix “The Bootcamp experience was still fresh in our minds. We applied lessons learned there even during proposal writing – from identifying audiences, clearly connecting activities to goals and outcomes, to developing a sustainability plan. GeoEDF will utilize SGCI consulting services on usability and user-centered design and impact assessment, and leverage the SGCI student internship program.” Carol Song of Purdue University and four co-PIs, including Jack Smith...

Science Gateways Supporting Deep Earth Imaging

The Texas Advanced Computing Center recently published an article about how science gateways are making it possible for researchers to explore the existence of mantle plumes. Thus far, the plumes are hypothesized, mushroom-shaped upwellings of hot rock from deep in the Earth. With the help of supercomputer simulations, one team has, for the first time, detailed how plumes decelerate seismic waves and how plumes appear in seismic tomographic images of the Earth's mantle. This work could help...

The Rosie Science Gateway

A widely used program called Rosetta, which was originally developed as a structure prediction tool at the University of Washington, was adapted to solve a wide range of common computational macromolecular problems. The program enabled scientific advances in computational biology, including protein design, enzyme design, ligand docking, and structure predictions for biological macromolecules and macromolecular complexes. With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Rosetta...
