The National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS) is expanding its reach by adding tools, services and partners to help biological research communities make important new scientific discoveries. In conjunction with its participation in the Plant and Animal Genome Conference (PAG XXI), NCGAS announced three initiatives to accelerate US public and private sector research and development in biology and biomedical research.
* New NSF-funded facilities partner (Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center)
* New on-demand computing services
* New resources for private sector researchers
“Our partnership with the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center — paired with Penguin On-Demand resources and optimized software — will help NCGAS expand services to the US research community in important new ways,” said Craig Stewart, dean for IU Research Technologies, executive director of PTI and principal investigator on the NCGAS grant award.
William Barnett, NCGAS director, added, “It’s exciting to think of the breakthroughs to come in the years ahead as we continue to provide tools and services to genome researchers, enabling innovative and potentially transformative genomics research.”
