As a part of our mission we are designing easy-to-use web
interfaces for various computational biology tools. This
application suite and
interface is a product of long development of an user
friendly system providing
access to high performance computing for
computational biology. The
development started in 2001 as one
of facility projects and over the years
changed into Computational Biology Applications Suite for High
(BioHPC Suite). This
suite is available for download
along with the interface source code
and will run/interface with any
Microsoft-based cluster and Unix
cluster. You can
find more details on the BioHPC Suite home page.
The BioHPC project was supported in
Microsoft High-Performance Computing Institutes
(our facility was one of them) and currently
is partly supported by Microsoft Research.
The applications are run on
facility computer clusters and
servers. BioHPC can interface both
with local and remote clusters. More information about our hardware resources can be found
The usage of various applications in this BioHPC installation is
summarized on BioHPC@CBSU statistics page.
Our computing resources are available to registered users only. Registration
is available to Cornell students, faculty, and staff as well as their collaborators.
We spent a lot of time and effort developing this interface, and
we hope it is a useful resource. You can help us in this effort by
