Data Visualization for All

Technology Review has an article profiling a data visualization method developed by researchers at UC Davis and LLNL that claims to bring protein folding simulations using massive data sets to the desktop. Using an algorithm that breaks gargantuan data sets, such as those used for protein folding, into more easily computed chunks, the researchers have demonstrated a more practical way to visualize protein structure simulations than standing in line at your local cluster or supercomputer center.
