Soybean science blooms with supercomputers
August 16, 2016
Knowledge of the soybean in the U.S. has come a long way since its start in the 1700s. An ambitious project called Soybean Knowledge Base (SoyKB), developed at the University of Missouri-Columbia, aims to find and publicly share comprehensive soybean data achieved through the use of high-performance computing enabled by the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment's (XSEDE) Stampede supercomputer.
