The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group is a pioneer in the realm of high-performance computing. To meet our computational needs, we maintain a wide selection of computers divided into four main categories: compute power, visualization equipment, desktop workstations, and infrastructure. Additionally, we rely upon a variety of software, and are leading users of the nation's supercomputing resources.

The TCB Group is also dedicated to helping both the biomedical community, and the computational world as a whole, by sharing the knowledge developed while administering the group internally. This knowledge is shared in the user and sysadmin documentation libraries. Addititionally, source code can be found as part of the MDTools library.

Computational Facility Spotlights
Spotlight - Disk Space
Disks
As the Resource simulates larger and larger molecules for increasingly long times, the need for disk space has grown exponentially. Our local network currently hosts 500 terabytes of hard drives, divided across seven file servers. In addition to a five gigabyte disk quota for their home directories, users can store up to three hundred gigabytes of regularly backed-up data in a shared Projects space. An additional terabyte of shared space available as scratch space for all users. More information on our disk space partitioning is available here.
