An ever-increasing number of projects within the Boston University community rely on computation as an essential element of their research. The Research Computing Services (RCS) group has supported high-performance research computing and visualization at Boston University for over 30 years. Included on this page is a sampling of projects that have used the computational resources and consulting services supported by RCS as part of their work. (See our Visualizations Gallery for examples of visualizations enabled by RCS).
