Blue Waters enables massive flu simulations
UCSD researchers model the viral coat in unprecedented detail.
Blue Waters helps get clearest picture of how HIV defeats a cellular defender
U. of I. physics professor Klaus Schulten, postdoctoral researcher Juan Perilla and their colleagues used experimental data and computer simulations to determine how a human protein that aids HIV infection binds to the HIV capsid.
DNA molecules directly interact with each other
Using Blue Waters supercomputer simulations, researchers find DNA molecules interact with each other based on sequence.
Blue Waters researchers discover "dark galaxy"
Researchers have uncovered the existence of a dwarf "dark galaxy" lurking nearly 4 billion light-years away from Earth. The discovery paves the way to spot many more such objects, which could help astronomers address important questions on the true nature of dark matter.
Blue Waters helps solve Yellowstone supervolcano mystery
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign geology assistant professor Lijun Liu investigated the formation of Yellowstone volcanism using the Blue Waters supercomputer.
Using Blue Waters simulations, researchers show molecules of DNA directly interact with each other based on their sequences.
