DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY ISSUES A PRESS RELEASE ABOUT OUR 2020 INCITE AWARD

Our group was among the 47 recipients of INCITE Awards from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. The projects originate in national laboratories, academia, and industry, and encompass a remarkable range of scientific inquiry. Ours was among the projects in the areas of Biological Sciences/Biophysics. Here are the 2020 INCITE Announcement and the list of 2020 […]

NEW INCITE POJECT AWARDED FOR 2020

Our INCITE Award was competitively renewed for 2020 by the DOE Office of Science. The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program accelerates scientific discoveries and technological innovations by awarding, on a competitive basis, time on the world’s fastest supercomputers to researchers with large-scale, computationally intensive projects that address “grand challenges” in science and engineering. Our […]

NEW PAPER IN NATURE STRUCTURAL & MOLECULAR BIOLOGY

Congratulation to Chunli Yan and Tom Dodd who published a new paper in the journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology on the molecular architecture and functional dynamics of the transcription preinitiation complex (PIC). Yan, C.; Dodd, T.; Tainer, J.A.; He, Y.; Tsutakawa, S.E.; & Ivanov, I.* Transcription preinitiation complex structure and dynamics provide insight into genetic diseases Nature Structural […]

New INCITE Award provides access to the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility

Ivaylo received a new INCITE Award from the DOE Office of Science. The Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program accelerates scientific discoveries and technological innovations by awarding, on a competitive basis, time on the world’s fastest supercomputers to researchers with large-scale, computationally intensive projects that address “grand challenges” in science […]

Bernard Scott selected for the XSEDE Scholars Program

Congratulations to Bernard Scott who has won a fellowship from the XSEDE Scholars Program. The XSEDE Scholars Program (XSP) is a selective year-long program for U.S. students from underrepresented groups in the computing sciences who receive opportunities to learn more about high performance computing and XSEDE resources. XSEDE, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, is the most […]

New XSEDE Award

Ivaylo Ivanov receives a XSEDE award of computational time at the NICS to futher our research efforts on base excision repair. Our proposal entitled “Exploring the Chemical Landscape for Base Excision DNA Repair” was approved to receive 2,500,000 CPU hours under allocation CHE110042.

INCITE AWARD

Our renewal proposal through the DOE INCITE initiative was awarded 4,000,000 CPU hours at the leadership computing facility at ORNL. We are gratified that the award exceeded our original request by 400,000 units For more details about the award refer to the new DOE Office of Science.

INCITE Proposal

A renewal proposal for computational resources through the DOE INCITE initiative has been submitted (07/01/2009). In 2009 our research project entitled “Interplay of AAA+ molecular machines, DNA repair enzymes and sliding clamps at the replication fork: A multiscale approach to modeling replisome assembly and function” was competitively chosen to receive 2,600,000 CPU hours of supercomputing […]
