D. E. Shaw Research is an independent research laboratory that conducts basic scientific research in the field of computational biochemistry under the direct scientific leadership of Dr. David E. Shaw. The group is currently focusing on molecular simulations involving proteins and other biological macromolecules of potential interest from both a scientific and a pharmaceutical perspective. The lab recently constructed a massively parallel supercomputer called Anton, designed specifically for the execution of molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Anton has already generated the world's longest MD trajectory, and is now being used by their scientists to execute preliminary protein simulations. Join us for an overview of D. E. Shaw's work on parallel algorithms and machine architectures for high-speed MD simulations and a description of the simulations that have helped elucidate the dynamics and functional mechanisms of biologically important proteins.
