NERSC’s Computing Power Steps into the Coronavirus Battle

City of Hope's Beckman Research Institute is using NERSC's Cori supercomputer to perform COVID-19 genome analysis. The project is using GROMACS and Amber codes to identify small molecules that can be used to assist in the diagnosis of COVID-19, design peptide libraries to mimic virus-host interactions, and annotate the virulence of the Italian strain as compared to the Chinese strain of COVID-19.

NERSC, ESnet Continue to Deliver for Nation’s Scientists During Pandemic

While people hunker down to slow the advance of COVID-19, NERSC and ESnet continue to provide critical computing and networking resources to thousands of scientists, including some who are exploring ways to fight the pandemic.
