Computational Capacity

The See Lab as its computational capabilities required to handle large data sets generated by the in-house NGS platforms. We have a 32 core, 512GB RAM system for running the various computational jobs in the lab. In addition, there is a 96 core, 1TB RAM high performance computing cluster for massive parallel computation.
