Scientific Computing

The nature and volume of biological databases, along with the computational methods that model complex biological systems, all require processing power that cannot be achieved using desktop workstations alone.

The Unit has installed state-of-the-art scientific computing facilities, including a prototype machine resembling the MareNostrum supercomputer. Currently the complete computing farm comprises more than 350 processors, 0.33Tb of RAM memory, and 15Tb of storage space, allowing almost 3 million CPU hours of computation per year.
