Broad-Illumination Rendering of fibrin on BASS
February 13, 2009
CISMM is one of the primary users of the Biomedical Analysis and Simulation Supercomputer (BASS) system that was commissioned yesterday. One of the first uses of the machine was to construct a high-resolution rendering of fibrinogen (blood clotting molecule of interest to our thrombisis collaborators Susan Lord, John Weidel, Martin Guthold, and Alisa Wolberg). This is a prototype for the PDB rendering project in collaboration with David Banks at with the Klaus Schulten NCRR on Macromolecular Modeling and Bioinformatics.
