Rhode Island NSF EPSCoR is working with the Brown University Center for Computation and Visualization (CCV) to promote the use of cyberinfrastructure, computational science, and bioinformatics in the study of the response of marine life to climate variability.
There are resources available for researchers working on EPSCoR related projects including:
- Highest priority access to the EPSCoR 256-core condo maintained and supported by the CCV (additional hardware and memory expansion of this cluster-condo is anticipated in 2012)
- Data storage purchase (CCV priced at $750 per TB) and includes automatic backup and storage for up to six years
- Highest priority access to the Scale-MP “Fat Node” of 1.5 TB which is extremely useful for de novo genome assembly from fragment reads (access needs to be set up through CCV on a per job basis – i.e. no queuing software available at this point)
- Highest priority access to bioinformatics consultation and training support fro Lingsheng Dong (Bioinformatics Core of Brown Center for Genomics and Proteomics)
- Technical support of the research technician and facility manager of the Proteomics Facility, includes general and specific training and educational instruction for approved EPSCoR Academy STEM activities
