The only resource OSC currently charges for on batch jobs is processor use. We are considering a modification to our charging policy to reflect the fact that memory is also a scarce resource that should be accounted for in resource usage charges. The proposed change affects only Oakley jobs that request more than 4GB memory per processor (core).
It’s long been known that certain strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) cause cancer. Now, researchers at The Ohio State University have determined a new way that HPV might spark cancer development – by disrupting the human DNA sequence with repeating loops when the virus is inserted into host-cell DNA as it replicates.
