Egg solution might crack CO2 shell

What do eggshells, calcium carbonate formation, atmospheric CO2, and high-performance computing all have in common?

Large-scale ‘molecular modeling’ at the level of a nanometer — one-billionth of a meter.

High-performance computer (HPC) processing has enabled scientists to crack the question of eggshell formation at the molecular level, thus demonstrating the successful running of large-scale molecular modeling. Using it, University of Warwick scientists Mark Rodger and David Quigley identified a mechanism for the protein, called ovocleidin-17, (OC-17) as a key catalyst in eggshell production.

Such techniques have wide-ranging uses.
