D-Rose’s knee, preening birds, neurosurgery and more in this week’s LabBook.
A look at how UChicago researchers are using one of the world’s most powerful biomedical supercomputers.
Two major gifts will build momentum behind the University of Chicago’s leadership in biomedical computation by assembling experts in the field and furnishing them with the tools to use “big data” to understand disease and solve today’s health-related challenges.
Text messaging, sequestration and more in this week’s “in like a lion” edition of LabBook
When ecologists study how species interact in their natural environments, one of the most important things to understand is the structure of food webs, the relationships between predator and prey, or who eats what. As you can imagine, these webs can get pretty complex in the real world as the number of species in a […]
Mysterious GI disorders, climate change, pharma marketing and more in this week’s LabBook
Rob Mitchum from the Computation Institute wrote a new post about CAVE2, a room-sized virtual reality environment that, besides the jaw-dropping cool factor, can be used to train surgeons by letting them stand inside a high-definition visualization of the anatomy of the brain. The CAVE2 system was developed by the Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University […]
Reblogged from ScaleOut: At the molecular level, science is often a series of snapshots. With the most advanced imaging techniques, researchers can magnify targets over a million times, allowing them to examine structures as small as an Ångstrom. But in order to achieve this incredible resolution, most techniques require their targets to be fixed in […]
Most computer users are familiar with a handful of data storage measurements: kilobytes, megabytes, gigabytes. If you have a big digital music or movie collection, you might even have a hard drive measuring in the terabytes. But what about a petabyte? Even if you know the basic formula for calculating storage sizes (a petabyte is […]
