The long-awaited UK national supercomputer has finally been unveiled. The computer, dubbed HECToR, is based in Edinburgh and will be open to academic and industrial users.
A computer has been programmed to understand the quirks of a dog's bark, including the context and the sound of each individual 'voice'
Powerful simulations calibrated and validated with advanced imaging techniques could create an accurate model of the heart in silico, providing a virtual test subject for future investigations.
Mathematical models have revealed that the way cells pack into the eyes of the fruit fly shares key features in common with the structure of foam.
Scientists from the Walker Institute at the University of Reading will study the problem of climate change using a UK academic supercomputer called HECToR, which was launched on 14 January.
Scientists believe they have found a technique to find the true form of dark energy, by analysing the way sound waves produced shortly after the Big Bang propagate through the universe.
The latest supercomputer simulations have revealed that the Milky Way could be populated with many more rogue black holes than had previously been expected.

Building a Smart Laboratory 2018 highlights the importance of adopting smart laboratory technology, as well as pointing out the challenges and pitfalls of the process
Informatics experts share their experiences on the implementing new technologies and manging change in the modern laboratory
This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.
This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value
This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
