A Game Changer: Metagenomic Clustering Powered by HPC

March 12, 2018

A team of researchers from Berkeley Lab's CRD and JGI took one of the most popular clustering approaches in modern biology—the Markov Clustering algorithm—and modified it to run quickly, efficiently and at scale on distributed-memory supercomputers. Read More »

Can Strongly Lensed Type Ia Supernovae Resolve One of Cosmology’s Biggest Controversies?

March 1, 2018

Using the SciDAC developed SEDONA code and NERSC supercomputers, astrophysicists at Berkeley Lab and the University of Portsmouth discovered how to control the effects of "micolensing." Armed with this knowledge they believe they will be able to find 1000 strongly lensed Type Ia supernovae in real-time from LSST data--that's 20 times more than previous expectations. Read More »

Berkeley Lab “Minimalist Machine Learning” Algorithms Analyze Images from Very Little Data

February 21, 2018

Berkeley Lab mathematicians have developed a new approach to machine learning aimed at experimental imaging data. Rather than relying on the tens or hundreds of thousands of images used by typical machine learning methods, this new approach “learns” much more quickly and requires far fewer images. Read More »

Berkeley Lab Researchers Contribute to Making Blockchains Even More Robust

January 30, 2018

In the last few years, researchers at Berkeley Lab, UC Davis and University of Stavanger in Norway have developed a new protocol, called BChain, which makes private blockchain even more robust. The researchers are also working with colleagues at Berkeley Lab and beyond to adapt this tool to support applications that are of strategic importance to the Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

Berkeley Lab’s ArrayUDF Tool Turns Large-scale Scientific Array Data Analysis Into a Cakewalk

January 2, 2018

A novel scalable framework developed by CRD researchers is improving scientific productivity by allowing researchers to run user-defined custom analysis operations on large arrays of data with massively parallel supercomputers, while leaving complex data management and performance optimization tasks up to the underlying system.
