A Community Roadmap for Scientific Workflows Research and Development

The landscape of workflow systems for scientific applications is notoriously convoluted with hundreds of seemingly equivalent workflow systems, many isolated research claims, and a steep learning curve. To address some of these challenges and lay the groundwork for transforming workflows research and development, the WorkflowsRI and ExaWorks projects partnered to bring the international workflows community together.

The Impact of the HydroxyMethylCytosine epigenetic signature on DNA structure and function

In Eukaryotic cells, DNA epigenetic modifications play an important role in gene expression and regulation, and protein recognition. In this work we investigate the physical implications of cytosine 5-hydroxymethylation on DNA, its structural and flexibility differences with methylated and unmodified cytosine using molecular dynamics, biophysical experiments and NMR spectroscopy.
