Dihydrofolate reductase has long been used as a model system to study the coupling of protein motions to enzymatic hydride transfer. By studying environmental effects on hydride transfer in dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) from the cold-adapted bacterium Moritella profunda (MpDHFR) and comparing the flexibility of this enzyme to that of DHFR from Escherichia(More)
RoboGrams is a lightweight and efficient message passing architecture that we designed for the RoboCup domain and that has been successfully used by the Northern Bites SPL team. This unique architecture provides a framework for separating code into strongly de-coupled modules, which are combined into configurable dataflow graphs. We present several(More)
Hybrid Density Functional Theory (DFT) has recently gained popularity as an accurate model of electronic interactions in chemistry and materials science applications. The most computationally expensive part of hybrid DFT simulations is the calculation of exchange integrals between pairs of electrons. We present strategies to achieve improved load balancing(More)
Performing artists are athletes. Like athletes, performing artists practice and/or perform most days with little off season, play through pain, "compete" in challenging environments, and risk career-threatening injury. Athletes and the Arts is a multiorganizational initiative linking the sport athlete and musician/performing artist communities. Performing(More)
