Congratulations to our collaborator XENON1T who just observed the rarest decay process ever measured! While this liquid xenon Time Projection Chamber is designed to search for dark matter, its ultra-low background allows the chamber to be sensitive to a large range of rare processes. One of these is the 2 … Read More
The scientific computational work as portable workflows. Automatically locates the necessary input data and computational resources, and manages storage space for executing data-intensive workflows on storage-constrained resources. Learn more.
From failures at runtime (fault-tolerance). Task are automatically retried in the presence of errors. A rescue workflow containing a description of only the work that remains is provided. Provenance is also captured (data, software, parameters, etc.). Learn more.
Pegasus powers LIGO gravitational wave detection analysis
The Pegasus team is very happy to hear about LIGO’s incredible discovery: the first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes. We congratulate the entire LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the Virgo Collaboration on this incredible achievement.
The Pegasus team is very pleased to have contributed to LIGO’s software infrastructure. One of the main analysis pipelines used by LIGO to detect the gravitational wave was executed using Pegasus Workflow Management System (WMS). The PyCBC analysis pipeline analyzed data from the two LIGO detectors. Initially the analysis was managed by Pegasus WMS on the LIGO Data Grid. LIGO extended their computations to the nation-wide cyber-infrastructures, Open Science Grid and XSEDE. Pegasus aided this expansion by managing cross-site data transfers and computations in a reliable, scalable, and efficient manner. Pegasus enables LIGO researchers to easily monitor and analyze their workflows via a web based dashboard, and a suite of command line tools.
Diamonds that Deliver!
The Pegasus team is very happy to hear about the cutting-edge research and development that can help solve some of the challenges associated with drug delivery discovery: “The motions of a tRNA (or transfer RNA) model system can be enhanced when coupled with nanodiamonds, or diamond nanoparticles approximately 5 to 10 nanometers in size”. The discovery involved ORNL's Spallation Neutron Source, which provides the most intense pulsed neutron beams in the world for scientific research and industrial development, and ORNL's Titan supercomputer, the nation's most powerful for open science. By comparing the SNS neutron scattering data with the data from the team's molecular dynamics simulations on Titan, the researchers have confirmed that nanodiamonds enhance the dynamics of tRNA when in the presence of water; This analysis was performed with the Pegasus WMS.Read more...

We are happy to announce the release of Pegasus 4.9.1 . Pegasus 4.9.1 is a minor bug fix release and includes a major change to how transfers are handled for containerized jobs. Pegasus 4.9.1 also includes support for Shifter. Until Pegasus 4.9.0 the transfers for the jobs were conducted on the host … Read More
Ariella Gladstein at the University of Arizona reconstructed the population history of Ashkenazi Jews, who are Jews historically from Central and Eastern Europe. The Ashkenazi Jews are often used in genetic studies due to their high rates of genetic disorders and complicated population history. However, until now, genetic studies have … Read More
