OpenFold Member PUXANO Secures Prestigious GPU Resources for Protein Design Innovation

18 April 2024

We are thrilled to announce that PUXANO has been awarded a prestigious grant for a new collaboration with the Mohammed AlQuraishi Lab at Columbia University! This partnership will focus on developing an advanced diffusion AI model specifically tailored for protein design.

Thanks to this grant we will have access to GPU computation resources on the Karolina cluster to train a new version of the Genie diffusion model (Genie 3.0). The PUXANO platform for high-throughput experimental validation of protein designs will be used to validate the proteins designed for different tasks.

This significant recognition comes from the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (JU) and the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE), highlighting PUXANO’s cutting-edge approach to protein design.
