A quality-of-life research study will join the NCI-MATCH (EAY131) precision medicine cancer trial, already underway. 'The number one question patients ask after receiving their tumor test results is 'Is this mutation something inherited and will it affect my family as well as me?,' said the lead researcher. The study will determine whether increasing knowledge about the limitations/benefits of tumor profiling to select cancer treatment can reduce a patient's level of distress about the process.
A process developed for large-scale recovery of rare earth magnets from used computer hard drives will undergo industrial testing under a new agreement between Oddello Industries LLC and ORNL, as part of the Department of Energy's Critical Materials Institute.
As NOAA launches a comprehensive system this month for forecasting water resources, it's turning to NCAR technology. The new forecasting system uses a powerful, NCAR-based computer model, known as WRF-Hydro, to provide continuous predictions of water levels and potential flooding in rivers and streams from coast to coast.
Soybean Knowledge Base (SoyKB) project finds and shares comprehensive genetic and genomic soybean data through support of NSF-sponsored XSEDE high performance computing. SoyKB helps scientists improve soybean traits. XSEDE Stampede supercomputer 370,000 core hour allocation used in resequencing of over 1,000 soybean germplasm lines. XSEDE ECSS established Pegasus workflow that optimized SoyKB for supercomputers. SoyKB migrated workflow to XSEDE Wrangler data intensive supercomputer. Scientific cloud environment Jetstream of XSEDE broadened user base.
A moment of inspiration during a wiring diagram review has saved more than $2 million in material and labor costs for the Trinity supercomputer at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
A powerful materials discovery platform created at Harvard University to dramatically accelerate the process of screening millions of molecules for use in future technologies will now speed the commercial development of next-generation electronic displays.
Kx System, US, has been chosen by Earlham Institute, UK, as their technology partner for a new project which will revolutionize research into bioinformatics and promote a sustainable bioeconomy.
As with most cancers, triple-negative breast cancer cells have abnormal amounts of chromosomes or DNA copy number aberrations in their genomes. A new study used single cell sequencing technology to provide previously unknown details about how and when CNAs impact tumor formation and growth, information that may have significant implications for diagnosis and treatment.
Tomsk Polytechnic University, Russia, has signed an agreement on scientific cooperation with the Deutsches Elecktronen Synchotron (DESY), Germany -- one of Europe's largest accelerator centers. The task of polytechnicers in the joint project will be to develop equipment for the continuous monitoring the diagnostic station parameters of European XFEL amplified beam, that will make the operation of the X-ray free laser as accurate as possible.
