The XSEDE Industry Relations team has created a survey to better identify the training needs of industry with respect to computational modeling and high-performance computing skills.

The Darter supercomputer at the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) is making it possible for a University of Tennessee, Knoxville, researcher to clarify phenomena and features of macromolecules that are of great importance in the development of sustainable energy technologies.

A research team based at the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences collaborated with the Seattle Children's Research Institute to develop and perfect a high-throughput workflow for the update of a proteins database and the robust interpretation of the genetic makeup of organisms. The project contributes to the effort to describe biological processes on a molecular level.

The financial services and medical insurance industries powerfully influence the lives of people. Resources from the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) are supporting research that's exploring the dynamics of competition in those industries.

Lasers are an integral part of modern life—from supermarket checkout scanners to tools for cosmetic surgery. Researchers from the University of Virginia used Kraken (now decommissioned) to better understand how lasers interact with materials. The work is aimed at enabling intelligent design of new laser applications.
