Gravitational Wave Announcement

SU’s Crush Powers NSF-funded LIGO Scientific Collaboration. The Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) installations in in Hanford Washington and Livingston Louisiana completed their first and long-awaited “observing run”. This 106-day run dubbed “O1” concluded on January 12, 2016 at 8:00 a.m. Pacific standard time. The result? Data. Lots of data.

Introduction to Grid Computing

Introduction to Grid Computing

OrangeGrid Computing Almost any computational problem can be solved on a single computer. However, when you encounter problems that are too large (or take too long) to be solved on a single machine you will need to use a computing cluster to complete your...
Starting Small With Big Data

Starting Small With Big Data

Michael Fudge Jr., Assistant Professor of Practice at the iSchool, recently chatted with our Research Computing group about one of his areas of interest.  Big Data.  Listen in… RC: Mike, how long have you been at SU? MF: 15-years.  This is my first semester as a...

The diverse array of campus computing resources available to SU’s researchers was created to take on new and greater computational tasks, enhance research productivity, increase the competitiveness of grant submissions, and advance scientific discovery across many...
OrangeGrid: Shifting evolutionary genetics research into high-gear

OrangeGrid: Shifting evolutionary genetics research into high-gear

The grand challenge currently facing biologists is to decipher how the information in our genome manifests itself as the biological characteristics that make up who we are. This process is referred to as establishing genotype-phenotype associations and the ability of...
