Our Catalysis Modelling Group now has their own web page. Check out the work that they're doing on #catalysis using #DFT.
Mission. Catalysis Modelling Group (CMG) is a part of the Institute of High Performance Computing at A*STAR. Our research involves computer modeling of homogeneous as well as heterogeneous catalytic reactions at the atomistic level, exploring pathways in step-wise fashion.

A roadmap for graphene Nature 490, 7419 (2012). doi:10.1038/nature11458 Authors: K. S. Novoselov, V. I. Fal′ko, L. Colombo, P. R. Gellert, M. G. Schwab & K. Kim Recent years have witnessed many breakthroughs in research on graphene (the first two-dimensional atomic crystal) as well as a significant advance in the mass production of this material. This one-atom-thick fabric of carbon uniquely combines extreme mechanical strength, exceptionally h...

Do we feel equally inspired? Do we feel empowered to take such risks? Or do we play it safe?

Interesting post as well as the ACS Nano Editorial. I shared this with my department.
Is self-plagiarism — perhaps best referred to as duplication of your own work – a big problem in nanotechnology research? The American Chemical Society (ACS) Nano journal retracted a study, “Retraction of Nanoembossing Induced Ferroelectric Lithography on PZT Films for Silver Particle Patterning,” late last month because of such duplication: This article was withdrawn at the request of the Editor-in-Chief, with agreement by the authors, due to un...

Hey people - the first beta release of GROMACS 4.6 is out, with big performance boosts on all the cool new hardware. We've now got native GPU support and lots more shiny stuff!

We'd love to have some more beta testers, and we're sure you'll like the new performance, so please check out http://www.gromacs.org/Downloads and let us know what we need to improve for you!

This really cool. OK Go know how to make these type of videos. I don't think I'd have the patience.

The service for everything related to the airport here is awesome. I never went to the airport just for fun in Minnesota.

Introduction
I grew up in Minnesota and never thought I'd leave the state much less the country. I spent two years in Australia where I met a Singaporean girl. We moved to Singapore and two kids later, I have a hard time leaving.
