Panorama 360: Performance Data Capture and Analysis for End-to-end Scientific Workflows

— Panorama 360 Project Vision:
Provide a resource for the collection, analysis, and sharing of performance data about end-to-end scientific workflows executing on DOE facilities
— A Collaborative Project between:


Diamonds that deliver!

Neutrons, simulation analysis of tRNA-nanodiamond combo could transform drug delivery design principles.

A unique combination of experimentation and simulation was used to shed light on the design principles for improved delivery of RNA drugs, which are promising candidates in the treatment of a number of medical conditions including cancers and genetic disorders.


The DOE Panorama project has developed an SNS workflow to confirm that nanodiamonds enhance the dynamics of tRNA in presence of water. The workflow, enacted by the Pegasus Workflow Management System, calculates the epsilon that best matches experimental data. These calculations were for 10 ns each and the workflows used almost 400,000 CPU hours of time on DOE leadership class systems.

Water is seen as small red and white molecules on large nanodiamond spheres. The colored tRNA can be seen on the nanodiamond surface (Image by Michael Mattheson, OLCF, ORNL)
