ExaStar Takes Astrophysical Research to the Exascale

June 10, 2019

Within the next few years, exascale computing will take computationally intensive astrophysics research to the next level. However, to harness the power of exascale, researchers will need new code developed specifically for exascale computing. The ExaStar project has researchers from multiple DOE national labs collaborating to develop new exascale-level code. Read More »

Superfacility Framework Advances Photosynthesis Research

May 2, 2019

For more than a decade, a team of international researchers led by Berkeley Lab bioscientists has been studying Photosystem II, a protein complex in green plants, algae, and cyanobacteria that plays a crucial role in photosynthesis. They’re now moving more quickly toward an understanding of this three-billion-year-old biological system, thanks to an integrated superfacility framework established between LCLS, ESnet, and NERSC.
