Research Computing

Enabling scientific breakthroughs at scale with advanced computing


  • User Support

    School of Medicine Research Computing (SOMRC) is committed to providing individualized support for researchers who are engaged in computationally intensive projects. With expertise in high-performance computing, SOMRC provides support in the following areas: Bioinformatics & Genomics Cloud Solutions Data Analysis Scientific Computing Image Processing SOMRC delivers the services above in the context of system support (web-based ticketing) and consultations (in-person meetings). In either scenario, we seek long-term scientific collaborations.
  • Moving Big Data

    School of Medicine Research Computing works with researchers in the UVA Center for Public Health Genomics, to transfer large genomics datasets from partner institutions. Using Globus, an asynchronous data transfer utility (created at Argonne Laboratory and based on GridFTP), transfers of data larger than 40TB has been made easier and more reliable. Such large transfers benefit from dedicated, high-speed connectivity between Internet2 member institutions like UVA, Cornell University, and Washington University in St.
