Science Nation - Geo-Immersion

submitted by: nsf
Imagine a virtual computer simulation that reflects the world around you in real-time. Before you ever leave your home, a wealth of images and information about the world around you is at your finger-tips. Facial recognition might give information about the location of your friends, or maybe you want the latest scoop about the specials at local restaurants, or the real time locations and estimated arrival and departures of commuter trains. According to the Integrated Media Systems Center...

Samir Kumar Pal gives a talk at the ICAM 2007 conference about simulations of biomolecular dynamics and function

Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Biomolecules in Water

submitted by: icamvid

Alan Mark gives a talk at the ICAM 2007 conference about the challenge of molecular dynamics simulations of biomolecules in water in terms of accuracy, uncertainty, and scale.

Chemical Reactions in Photoreceptor and Motor Proteins Studied by Hybrid QM/MM Simulations

submitted by: icamvid

Shigehiko Hayashi gives a talk at the ICAM 2007 conference about how Ab initio QM/MM-MD simulations have elucidated the molecular dynamics underlying spectral observations.

An Accelerated View of Functional Dynamics in Bio-Molecular Systems

submitted by: icamvid

Phineus Markwick gives a talk at the RPP08 conference long time-scale MD simulations of protein dynamics. He discusses experiments using dipolar coupling to probe the protein dynamics. From these he shows how to build a simulation.

UC San Diego Engineers Bring Down the House

submitted by: ucsandiego

Recent simulated earthquake tests conducted by UC San Diego engineers are expected to lead to retrofit schemes that make historic buildings safer. The structural engineers tested a structure similar to those that were built in California in the 1920s that have masonry-infilled walls and reinforced concrete frames.

Reconstruction of Alternative Splice Variants and Associated Abundances from Short Sequence Reads (CSHL Genome Informatics Conference 2008)

submitted by: micha
The FLUX CAPACITOR : next generation sequencing technologies provide an unprecedented capacity for surveying the nucleic acid content of cells. This profound sequencing depth may allow in particular for exhaustively sequencing through the large dyanimc range of RNA abundances in the cell, overcoming limitations imposed by current (random) clone selection approaches. However, the very short reads produced by the most cost-effective such technologies make the reconstruction of complete RNA...
