- CUDA Centre of Excellence
NVIDIA has named the University of Oxford a CUDA Centre of Excellence in
recognition of its ongoing work in parallel computing research and education using NVIDIA GPUs and the NVIDIA CUDA® parallel programming environment.
One of the highlighted areas was our group's use of molecular dynamics
simulations to study DNA nanotechnology.
For more information see the press releases from NVIDIA and Oxford University, and a further article on the NVIDIA website.
The simulation code that implements our coarse-grained DNA model has
been released. This was announced at
FNANO12 in April 2012.
The website for the code is http://dna.physics.ox.ac.uk.

A recent paper by Raddicchi et al. entitled
Diffusion of scientific credits and the ranking
of scientists (Phys. Rev. E 80, 056103 (2009)) proposes a new way to rank
scientists similar to the Google Page ranking system.
(See the feature on the APS Physics site.)
The paper included a representation of the scientific citation network for papers published in the Physical Review on complex networks, where only the "top physicists in this field are shown" (Figure 2). There's a small node corresponding
to me towards the bottom right.

- Cambridge Templeton Consortium
The Cambridge Templeton Consortium was launched in April 2005.
The John Templeton Foundation
has made $3 million available to the Consortium to fund research into
the emergence of biological complexity at the biochemical, evolutionary
and societal levels.
Jonathan Doye, along with Ard Louis, is responisible
for the 'biochemistry and fine-tuning' program.
