Press Release 12-054
NSF's Most Powerful Computing Resource Has Opened Its Doors to Six Science Teams

From climate change to the HIV infection to the evolution of the universe, tool enables researchers to address some of the world's most challenging scientific questions

All-atom structure of an HIV virus capsid in its tubular form.

From Klaus Schulten's project about HIV infection, this image is of the first all-atom structure of an HIV virus capsid in its tubular form. Schulten and his team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are studying the protein capsid that encases the HIV-1 genome. The process through which this capsid disassembles, releasing its genetic material, is a critical step in HIV infection. Schulten's group will simulate a cylindrical capsid consisting of 12.5 million atoms.

Blue Waters' compute blades--which include processors, interconnect and memory--are the heart of what will be one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world. See a video with Cray's Steve Samse showing NCSA the compute blades.
