New theoretical, algorithmic, and computational tools are needed to
overcome the space and time scale challenges presented by
genomics-based materials design and manufacturing. I will discuss
several approaches to the coarse-graining of space and time needed to
achieve the predictive and efficient simulation of materials with
optimized properties — accelerated dynamics, atomistic-to-continuum
coupling, and microstructure coarse-graining. I will also present the
need for theory-driven method verification and benchmarking with some
