Scientists explore lipid metabolism with simulations and experiments

Proper regulation of lipid metabolism and storage is critical for our health. A central role in this is played by so-called lipid droplets, which are a sort of storage system for lipids and also serve as cellular energy suppliers. To better understand these droplets and how they may affect the development of diseases, Biophysicist Stefano Vanni performed molecular dynamics simulations using PRACE supercomputing resources. The results shed new light on the vital work of phospholipids, and on the mysterious protein seipin.

Simulations, HPC and technology — the new weapon against the coronavirus

Along with vaccines and drugs, ventilation techniques are becoming a powerful weapon against the coronavirus. These devices clean the air of indoor spaces, such as classrooms, disposing of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. However, to construct and install fitting devices, researchers must first learn, how viable the virus is and how air cleaning systems can get rid of it in suitable time — before infection occurs. Recently, scientists at NCSA in Bulgaria performed simulations to examine these factors and laid the groundwork for anti-virus ventilation systems for classroom and other populated indoor locations.
