Novel Algorithms Speed Up Genome Assembly

Genomev1.jpg

A team of scientists from Berkeley Lab, JGI and UC Berkeley, simplified and sped up genome assembly, reducing a months-long process to mere minutes. This was primarily achieved by “parallelizing” the code to harness the processing power of supercomputers. » Read More

Supernova Hunting with Supercomputers

CCSE’s Juliane Mueller Optimizes Codes to Cut Computational Costs

June 17, 2015

Finding a way to keep computing expenses down while still getting the most science from the simulations is the specialty of Juliane Mueller, the 2014 Alvarez Fellow in Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division. She’s a member of the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering, which develops algorithms to study complex problems ranging from combustion to supernovae.
