Scientific Computing

The Scientific Computing team provides in-depth service for all research groups by maintaining the Gene Center’s computational infrastructure. Scientific Computing helps design and implement the hardware resources (HPC clusters, file servers, dedicated compute hosts) and the scientific software run on them. In addition, it establishes high performance programs and software pipelines to process the output of high-throughput instruments and assist the individual researcher in handling large complex data sets. The computing resources available to the research groups at the Gene Center range from high-end 3D workstations and dedicated servers to multiple computing clusters, with a current total of over 2000 cores. Given the rapidly growing need for enormous amounts of disc space and the demands on I/O to move the data to and from the CPUs, the team seeks to develop customized solutions that are cost effective and stable. Close to 1 PB of scientific data are currently stored on disks in the house.
