Submitted: Probing protein orientation near charged surfaces

Figure from our paper on probing protein orientation near charged surfaces.

Submitted: 31 March 2015. arXiv preprint: 1503.08150   This new paper presents our latest research using PyGBe, the open-source code for Poisson-Boltzmann equations using the boundary element method, algorithmic acceleration via multipole expansions and hardware acceleration via GPUs. In this work, we have extended PyGBe to treat the interaction of molecules with engineered surfaces of prescribed... Continue »

Ph.inally D.one!

Congratulations Anush! Friends surprised Anush with this lovely cake to celebrate his accomplishment.

Two Barba-group Ph.D. students successfully defended their doctoral dissertation this week. Congratulations to them! Anush Krishnan came to Boston University on 2009, after completing a Dual Degree (B. Tech & M. Tech.) in Aerospace Engineering at IIT Madras, Chennai, India. He has worked on development of immersed boundary methods (IBM) for solving Navier-Stokes equations at moderate... Continue »

A collaboration to issue badges in #numericalmooc

Announcing a collaboration with Prof. Daniel T. Hickey (Indiana University Center for Research on Learning and Technology) to award badges in our independent MOOC, "Practical Numerical Methods with Python." When I was writing the short, internal proposal for creating what is now GW's first massive open online course (MOOC), I had a handful of clear... Continue »

Announcing "Practical Numerical Methods with Python" MOOC

Aug. 6—New! Course site now open for registrations! As announced at SciPy 2014 (July 8), I will be teaching a numerical methods course at GW this Fall semester that will be connected with three other courses around the world, and also with an independent MOOC titled "Practical Numerical Methods with Python." This is a collaboration... Continue »
