The human genome is made up of 3 billion base pairs. Reading the genome from a modern, high-speed sequencer is a lot like doing a big jigsaw puzzle. Computer Scientist, Assistant Professor Yanlei Diao (UMass Amherst) is leading a multi institution collaboration to develop next-generation, on-demand big computation services for managing and processing these massive amounts of genomic information. Continue reading Big Data, Big Computation and the Genomic Jigsaw Puzzle
The MGHPCC consortium hosted a workshop, held on September 14, 2012 at the Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science and Engineering at Boston University, to provide an overview and update of the MGHPCC, short talks by 2011 MGHPCC seed-fund recipients, and an overview and discussion of the 2012 seed-fund program.

The MGHPCC seed fund is allowing Alfredo Alexander Katz (Material Science, MIT) and Alán Aspuru-Guzik (Quantum Chemistry, Harvard) to combine computational techniques from materials science with computational thinking from quantum chemistry. In this video Alfredo and Alán describe more about their collaboration and the new science it is enabling. Continue reading Quantum Mechanics, Squishy Materials, and Extreme Photosynthesis
MGHPCC is more than just a building. It is also intended as an engine for future research. To seed interest in and raise awareness of the new facility, last summer the research committee posted a call for funding proposals to the high performance computing communities of MIT, Harvard, BU, UMASS and Northeastern. After careful deliberation, the committee recently announced it’s picks. Continue reading 2012 Seed Fund Recipients Announced
The 2011 MGHPCC Seed Fund RFP is soliciting research proposals for computer and computational science. Pre-proposals are due October 1st, 2011. A total of $500K is available with anticipated award sizes in the range of $50K – $150K. Proposals must involve investigators from two or more of Boston University, Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts system. Continue reading Seed Fund RFP 2011
Boston University, June 28, 2011, Faculty from the five MGHPCC universities and other institutions gather for a New England Faculty Summit on Cybersecurity to discuss the possibility (and next steps) for setting up a regional academic consortium on Cyber Security research and education. Continue reading Institute Hosts New England Faculty Summit on Cyber Security
MGHPCC co-sponsors Workshop on Immunology for Physical Scientists and Engineers held at BU.
Billed as an “unconference where early adapters of Cloud Computing technologies exchange ideas”, CloudCamp 2010 was a forum for open discussion around cloud computing. Aimed at end users, IT professionals and vendors Cloudcamp 2010 took place in the Andrew M. Scibelli Enterprise Center, Springfield Community College. Continue reading CloudCamp 2010
