Our Computing infrastructure

We provide the MRC WIMM with a high performance computing platform called JADE, offering researchers efficient ways to store, analyse, collaborate and publish large data sets. In addition, expert staff install complex bioinformatics packages that can be used by all researchers and provide help and advice in their usage.

The JADE cluster is a Linux based environment which uses the open-source SLURM management system to schedule jobs:
