Story tips from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, August 2010

enter, or DAAC, are collaborating with Cornell University researchers through a project called DataONE (Observation Network for Earth) to enable advanced analysis of bird species distribution and migration patterns. The ORNL tool allows the Cornell investigators to pull specific data generated by NASA's MODIS satellite sensor and link it to field observations archived in Cornell's eBird database. "The combination of satellite data with the bird observations is a novelty," said Suresh Santhana Vannan, an ORNL DAAC scientist. "They're normally two separate research areas." By incorporating data extracted from MODIS such as the normalized vegetation density index, or "greenness" of the local area, researchers can conduct more complex analyses, such as modeling how variations in vegetation linked to climate change can affect bird migration.

HEALTH CARE -- Strength in numbers . . .

Medical advances made in laboratories and clinical settings could reach patients sooner because of a $38 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to nine institutions. The world's most powerful computers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory will play a role in the effort, as will the lab's capabilities in nanotechnology, genetics and particle science. Through a partnership with the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science, ORNL's task is to offer unparalleled opportunity in high-speed, high-volume computing to develop novel translational methodologies in drug discovery and genome-environment interactions. The funds were awarded as part of the Clinical and Translational Science Awards program (www.CTSAweb.org). [Contact: Ron Walli, (865) 576-0226; wallira@ornl.gov]
