Now taking requests for consulting and software services
to support campus researchers working on COVID-19
The United States has just created the COVID-19 HPC Consortium, a unique private-public effort spearheaded by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the US Department of Energy, and IBM to bring together federal government, industry, and academic leaders who are volunteering free compute time and resources on their world-class machines. Many academic institutions are already contributing computational resources to this effort.
XSEDE Cyberinfrastructure Resource Integration together with the National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS) are offering the following types of consulting and software services to operators of campus-based computational resources to aid in supporting campus researchers in their work on COVID-19:
- Consulting about and help in accessing and installing relevant bioinformatics software on local compute systems so that you can more effectively support local researchers taking part in research related to COVID-19 through teleconferences and other remote facilitation methods
- Consulting with bioinformatics software and system administration experts in support of your local research needs related to COVID-19, including use of containerized applications
- Consulting on data movement and management
- Assistance with the process of applying for and implementing the operational activities required to become a functioning member of the COVID-19 HPC Consortium
- Assistance in applying for resources available through The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) and the National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS)
For assistance, please fill out this request form and the team will reply as soon as possible to discuss your needs.
