Focus on Scientific Workflows

Ilkay Altintas’ work as Director of SDSC’s Scientific Workflow Automation Technologies Laboratory that has earned her particular acclaim. A scientific workflow is software composed of a series of computational and/or data manipulation tools or steps to produce an application that can be run especially on high-performance computers to produce data for subsequent analysis or comparison with other data sets.

Remembering Anushka Michailova

Anushka Mihailova, a project scientist in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California, San Diego died on May 17 after being struck by a hit-and-run driver while walking with her husband in Rancho Bernardo. Mihailova joined the department in 2000, where she was a researcher in the Cardiac Mechanics Laboratory led by bioengineering professor Andrew McCulloch in the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering. Mihailova was a key investigator of the National Biomedical Computation Resource. See UCSD News Center article

Friends and colleagues in the Department of Bioengineering at UC San Diego have honored Dr. Anushka Michailova by establishing The Anushka Michailova Memorial Award as a tribute to her tireless commitment to undergraduate and graduate student research by recognizing outstanding student accomplishment in cardiovascular bioengineering research.

NBCR is pleased to present two videos discussing recent development at the center. In the first video, Dr. Adarsh Krishnamurthy describes recent improvements to Continuity 6 highlighting features that enables patient specific modeling. In the second video, Dr. David Lee explains how NBCR is enabling research at remote locations through interactive visualization and discussion of data.

Scalable Bioinformatics Bootcamp

NBCR is proud to co-sponsor the upcoming Scalable Bioinformatics Boot Camp on May 22, 2014 at the San Diego Supercomputing Center on the UCSD campus, featuring the workflows framework bioKepler. In the Big Data era, scalability is becoming a prerequisite for bioinformatics applications to be able to efficiently process large scale datasets. This hands-on bootcamp will explain how you can turn your bioinformatics applications into scalable workflows by analyzing available options, techniques and tools. This is a free event with limited space available. Please register at Boot Camp Registartion

NBCR Team Models Nucleotide Diffusion

An NBCR research team recently published a paper investigating the spatiotemporal diffusion of adenine di- and triphosphate (ADP and ATP) nucleotides through the myofilament lattice in heart muscle. The investigation of diffusion of these biomolecules is important because they regulate cardiac energetics and coupling between cell excitation and contraction. See full article
