Using the HPCC, Physicists at UIC are studying permeation process across cellular membranes using Molecular Dynamics simulations. The system shown in the figure is a membrane protein (AcrB) that transports substrates across bacterial membrane. To read more about this research, please visit...Read More
A set of tightly connected computers working together as a single powerful system
Over the past decade, the amount of data produced by scientists and advanced instrumentation has grown at rapid pace causing a ‘data tsunami’ that creates challenges for processing and also storage of this data. Current estimates suggest a doubling of research data generated
Research computing is geared towards meeting UIC campus’ growing research and education related computing needs. With a shared computing cluster model, investors will have no-wait available access to the nodes that they’ve purchased plus access to other unused nodes on lower priority.
You’re also eligible to purchase nodes from the Illinois Campus Cluster (UIUC) program – https://campuscluster.illinois.edu/
Given the large scope of the project, this will be an exciting collaboration opportunity between multiple stakeholders. Four Colleges, several departments and individual investigators–all have contributed a substantial amount, indicating their interest and need for this resource:
