ORNL Researchers Receive INCITE Award

Jeremy Smith, Xiaolin Cheng and Loukas Petridis of ORNL have been awarded a DOE Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) award providing supercomputer time on the ORNL TITAN supercomputer for their work in BESC and a Biofuels SFA.  The work will be on a generic plant cell wall and its deconstruction for bioenergy for 100 million core hours for three years.  Access to high performance computing resources offers unique opportunities to bioenergy research. Using INCITE we will be able to simulate many biomass components, such as cellulose lignin and hemicellulose, reaching longer lengthscales that that are not accessible using conventional computational resources. Longer lengthscales enable a tighter integration of computation with neutron scattering experiments performed at ORNL when researching for rational design of more efficient biofuel production.
