Using Supercomputers to Predict Dispersal of Chemicals and Pollutants

Article

Motivated by a deadly chemical attack in Syria, researchers at the University of Texas at San Antonio are pursuing research that may help save lives during an airborne chemical attack. The team used the Stampede2 supercomputer and innovative computer simulation models to replicate the dispersion of the chemical gas released in the Syrian event, which may help improve evacuation speed during future attacks.

Artificial Intelligence, Real Solutions: How AI Can Accelerate Drug Discovery
Article

The rate at which new drugs are discovered is in decline, and computer-aided drug design has not produced the radical change in the success of candidate drugs the pharma industry anticipated. Artificial intelligence (AI)-based approaches are the new hope for revolutionizing the drug discovery process. But are these, as computer-aided drug design was, an over-hyped time bomb waiting to be found out? Or is it truly a revolution on the cusp of realizing its promise?

Antigenic Drift vs Antigenic Shift
Article

As part of the host-pathogen arms race, viruses are continually evolving to evade the host immune response, be it from previous infection or immunity acquired through vaccination. Here we take a look at the processes of antigenic drift and antigenic shift.
