Supercomputers help ORNL researchers identify key molecular switch that controls cell behavior
— OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Dec. 17, 2013— If scientists can control cellular functions such as movement and development, they can cripple cells and pathogens that are causing disease in the body.

INCITE grants awarded to 59 computational research projects
— OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Nov. 18, 2013—The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science announced 59 projects, promising to accelerate scientific discovery and innovation, that will share nearly 6 billion core hours on two of America’s fastest supercomputers dedicated to open science.

ORNL study uses neutron scattering, supercomputing to demystify forces at play in biofuel production
— OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Nov. 13, 2013 — Researchers studying more effective ways to convert woody plant matter into biofuels at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have identified fundamental forces that change plant structures during pretreatment processes used in the production of bioenergy.

CLIMATE - Going small with big computers
— ORNL's supercomputers are allowing climate scientists to zoom in on smaller and smaller areas to try to determine whether local and regional droughts influence climate extremes on a larger scale. What is the probability of a drought developing in the Southwest this decade? Ultra-high-resolution climate models may improve our ability to provide informed projections.

Modeling and Simulation Made Nice
— It is often the little things – input or compiler flags, unfamiliar file for- mats, cryptic output – that make users pause before embracing new scientific software.

CSMD Researcher Moetasim Ashfaq published in Nature Climate
— CSMD researcher Moetasim Ashfaq's paper "Response of snow-dependent hydrologic extremes to continued global warming" has been published by Nature magazine's online presense Nature Climate Change.
