Automated Extraction of Metadata from Climate Simulations: Project Wrap-Up

1. Introduction As the project intensively included the processing of NetCDF datasets, this section serves as a brief background to the NetCDF format and its underlying data structure. NetCDF stands for “Network Common Data Form”. The NetCDF creators (Rew, Davis,

Shared But Hard to Use: Helping Climate Researchers Share, Discover, and Use Data

1. The Problem Sharing data among researchers is usually an afterthought. In our case, data is already shared publicly on a data repository, which is called DSpace. DSpace serves as an open-access repository for scholarly data published in various scientific

That’s hot

Over the past decades, the planet has been experiencing worldwide climate change. In particular, the global warming process is characterized by drastic weather events, such as long periods of drought, or short intense precipitation. These can crucially affect vegetation and

Collect-Organise-Visualise: A Visualisation Dashboard for Fostering the Exploration of Climate Data

Visualisation is realising a growing recognition as a pivotal part of the data analysis process. As the title suggests, the project aims to avail data visualisation to help the climate research community answer or discover interesting questions about the field.

Under the spell of Athena (and Jupiter)

It was a very very long trip, which began on Sunday at 2 p.m. and ended on Monday at 11 pm (with a 15-hours stopover in Milan), but finally, I landed in Athens! Since first sight from the plane, I understood this was

Greece. A place to be.

Random View in Greece. Get used to it, because it's that beautiful everywhere here.

Choosing Greece and BRFAA, Zoe Cournia lab, for my PRACE Summer of HPC destination was probably one of the best decisions of my life. To be honest, the project was pretty difficult sometimes and I had a few days of

What’s in a virtual screening dataset?

In my previous blogpost, I explained the main objectives of my project. During these weeks, I have focused towards the data analysis side of HPC rather than working on optimizing a program that runs on a super computer. I have been working to

This is happening!

According to a plan, last week I’ve finally started my first proper simulation. That means, that upcoming one will finally be more chilled (hopefully). I transferred the files from Maestro to Gromacs, solvated, added ions, minimized, equilibrated (see tutorial, but

Selecting the true magical bullets

In the early 20th century, Paul Ehrlich laid the intelectual foundation of modern drug-design research through his inspirational concept of ‘magical bullets’. These ‘bullets’ are small chemical compounds with the ability to bind to biological targets, such as proteins or nucleic acids,

How to prepare MD simulation? Halfway in Athens.

My enzyme is ready for further steps!

First month has already passsed. That was really fast. But that is what happens when you have limited time for unlimited activities – which Greece for sure gives you, and which, for sure gives you a project in Molecular Dynamics

Summer of HPC in Athens

When we got invited to SoHPC, both of us were very excited. Samanta was sitting with friends in a bar when she received an e-mail and celebrated it immediately. Juan had just woken up (cultural differences, am I right?) but
