    Genetic data, accumulating at a rapid pace, are ideally suited to computer analysis. These data pose problems of a magnitude that requires supercomputing. The National Cancer Institute of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) has developed the Advanced Scientific Computing Laboratory to utilize these data for basic research of relevance to cancer and other diseases. The facility and its use f... View full abstract»

    Research aimed at developing a network model of the hippocampus based on electrophysiological and anatomical data is described. Simulations are used to examine the relationships between experiments on single cells and pairs of cells and experiments on populations of thousands of cells. The neuron model on which the network model is based is examined. The simulation methods are then discussed. Resu... View full abstract»

    The authors describe two biomechanical analyses carried out using numerical methods. One is an analysis of the stress and strain in a human mandible, and the other analysis involves modeling the adaptive response of a sheep bone to mechanical loading. The computing environment required for the two types of analyses is discussed. It is shown that a simple stress analysis of a geometrically complex ... View full abstract»
