#Cancer's big data problem - http://bit.ly/2e8lQm5
The U.S. Department of Energy is partnering with the National Cancer Institute in an “all-government” approach to fighting cancer. Part of this partnership is a three-year pilot project called the Joint Design of Advanced Computing Solutions for Cancer, which will use DOE supercomputing to build sop...
May the (atomic) force be with you
A new type of atomic force microscope (AFM) uses nanowires as tiny sensors. Unlike standard AFM, the device with a nanowire sensor enables measurements of both the size and direction of forces. Physicists at the University of Basel and at the EPF Lausanne have described these results in the recent i...
Most. Detailed. Scan. Ever.

Researchers at the University of Minnesota are doing the twist
Researchers in the University of Minnesota's College of Science and Engineering have measured the twisting force, or torque, generated by light on a silicon chip. Their work holds promise for applications such as miniaturized gyroscopes and torsional sensors to measure magnetic field, which can have...
#Argonne's Mike Papka presents on the Early Science Program for #ALCF's newest supercomputer, Theta. Theta is an 8.5 petaflops system based on Intel’s second generation Xeon Phi processor.
The Intel Xeon Phi User's Group (IXPUG) is an independent users group that provides a forum for the free exchange of information and ideas that enhance the usability and efficiency of scientific applications running on large Xeon Phi-based High Performance Computing (HPC) systems. Participation in IXPUG meetings and other activities is open to anyone interested in using the Phi for large-scale scientific or technical computing
