In this segment from the NPR Here and Now program, Joe Palca talks to researchers using ORNL supercomputers to fight COVID-19. “Supercomputers have joined the race to find a drug that might help with COVID-19. Scientists are using computational techniques to see if any drugs already on the shelf might be effective against the disease. The two researchers performed simulations on Summit of more than 8,000 compounds to screen for those that are most likely to bind to the main “spike” protein of the coronavirus, rendering it unable to infect host cells.”

Shahin Khan from OrionX.net gave this talk at the Washington Quantum Computing Meetup. “A whole new approach to computing (as in, not binary any more), quantum computing is as promising as it is unproven. Quantum computing goes beyond Moore’s law since every quantum bit (qubit) doubles the computational power, similar to the famous wheat and chessboard problem. So the payoff is huge, even though it is, for now, expensive, unproven, and difficult to use. But new players will become more visible, early use cases and gaps will become better defined, new use cases will be identified, and a short stack will emerge to ease programming.”

March 27, 2020 — The ELIXIR & European Bioinformatics Communities are organizing the Global COVID-19 Biohackathon on April 5 – 11, 2020. The goal of the biohackathon is to create a cohesive effort and work on tooling for COVID-19 analysis. This biohackathon will lead to more readily data accessibility, protocols, computational analysis tools, protein predictions […]

The National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) and Pawsey Supercomputing Centre (Pawsey) are joining efforts to offer additional computation and data resources to support the national and international research community to acquire, process, analyse, store and share data supporting COVID-19 research.

The COVID-19 Special Call is intended to identify and provide resources to research projects directly responding to the pandemic. COVID-19 Special Call projects may apply for High Performance Computing (HPC), cloud, storage resources and associated expert support across Australia’s national research computation providers.

A team from the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research in Osaka, Japan, have used the MDGRAPE-4A dedicated drug discovery supercomputer to analyze the structural dynamics of the main protease of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the new coronavirus disease, COVID-19. The raw data from the simulation has been published on Mendeley Data for use by researchers around the world..
