Bringing Digital Biology To Life
Research in molecular life science is becoming data-intensive. As new technologies enable EMBL’s scientists to acquire more – and more complex – data, the IT Services team deploys innovative approaches to help them store, analyse and make sense of that wealth of information.
3D Cloud: Efficient image analysis
The EMBL 3D Cloud is a flexible, scalable virtualisation infrastructure that enables users to process microscopy data without having to move large datasets multiple times. Read more...
What People Say
“I could use a huge chunk of EMBL's high-performance computing cluster for several weeks without causing problems for anyone else.”
Luis Pedro Coelho
Postdoctoral Fellow, Bork Group
"What I find very special about the IT department here is that you can come to them with a problem and they’ll solve it very quickly. The efficiency of the team is really remarkable."
“I’m very happy with the new system they’re setting up, which is the state-of-the-art in high-performance computing.”
Jaime Huerta Cepas
Research Scientist, Bork Group
"Image analysis that used to take about 30 days to run on 250 CPUs now takes around 30 hours on the GPU."
