The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) has received a $4.54 million grant from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) for a computer system to be used for research in the life sciences.
The grant ensures a strong life sciences program at the MGHPCC, which is operated by Boston University, Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts. Developed with financial support from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Cisco and EMC, the MGHPCC was conceived to support research by university faculty across all scientific disciplines and encourage collaboration among the participating institutions.
The new MLSC-funded system, called the Commonwealth Computational Cloud for Data Driven Biology, will be dedicated to enhancing life sciences research through large-scale computation and big data analytics.
