About this Class

This talk will provide an overview of the extensive computing resources (both hardware and software) available through the NIH Helix Systems.


The Helix Systems group is responsible for the planning and management of high-performance computing systems specifically for the intramural NIH community. These systems include Helix, a multiprocessor shared-memory system for interactive use; Biowulf, an 18,000+ processor Linux cluster; and Helixweb, which provides a number of scientific tools via the web. These systems provide access to an extensive library of computational applications for molecular and structural biology, genomics, mathematical and graphical analysis, and other scientific fields.

This talk is a rescheduled event for the talk postponed from October 22nd, 2013,
