Many MSU research projects depend on using resources provided by HPCC, or from proposals that iCER staff have contributed to. We list here a sample of abstracts from funded research projects that utilize MSU HPCC computational resources, and/or that MSU iCER staff have contributed to writing these proposals. Some of these projects are expanded up on the Research Highlights section.
Alex Brown received funding as part of NSF grant PHY-1068217 for a 32 node cluster with 512 GB of RAM.
Alex Brown received funding from DOE grant RC063211 to support a half-time postdoctoral associate, Eric McDonald (December 1, 2010 to November 30, 2011). Eric worked on improving the performance... more
The goal of this work is to validate Treecode's as the right tool for simulating ultra cold plasmas. Strongly coupled plasmas are well out side of the scope of traditional plasma simulation tools... more
Electro-energetic radiation sources from the microwave to terahertz frequencies comprise one of the core technological advantages of the US warfighter, with applications ranging from... more
As science becomes increasingly computational, the education gap between the skills that most biologists have and the skills that they need continues to widen... more
Modern biomedical research is increasingly making use of genome-scale data from next-generation sequencing platforms, including Illumina HiSeq and MiSeq machines and Pacific Biosciences SMRT.... more
Modern high performance computers offer hundreds of thousands of processors that can be leveraged, in parallel, to compute numerical solutions to time dependent Partial Differential Equations (... more
In a collaborative project led by Southern Illinois University Carbondale, Iyob Tsehaye and others at the Quantitative Fisheries Center and Department of Fisheries and Wildlife developed a... more
Finding Appropriate Harvest Policies for Admixed Fisheries to Ensure Long-Term Population Sustainability of Native Great Lake Fishes
This project began January 2013 and is slated to end December 2015, with Jim Bence and Travis Brenden as co-PIs, and is funded by the Great Lakes Fishery Trust. The project aims to evaluate... more
The main goal of this research is to develop tools to measure and understand how climate and land use by themselves and as interacting factors affect lake ecosystems across scales of time and... more
