About this Class

Due to the recent Government Furlough this talk had been POSTPONED

This talk will now take place on November 5th, at the same time and location.

This talk will provide an overview of the extensive computing resources (both hardware and software) available throught 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.
