High-Performance Computing

447813EF823D6CE2AEBCA69F67272D0B7229FCE0_hero.jpgThe University of Iowa College of Dentistry and Dental Clinics (COD) is committed to advancing dental care through innovative basic, translational and clinical dental research. To support the College’s research mission and to meet the increasing computational demands required by our expanding dental research programs, a high-performance computing (HPC) node has been purchased. This HPC node has already been deployed on UI HPC Argon Cluster and is administered by the College’s Division of Biostatistics and Computational Biology with a domain name CODBCB. The node has already reduced the time needed to process research computing requests from weeks to hours.

The purpose of The University of Iowa College of Dentistry Division of Biostatistics and Computational Biology (BCB) is to provide state-of-the-art and cost-effective biostatistics and bioinformatics support for all the research projects conducted at the college. This support includes long term grant and protocol support, project-oriented assistance, as well as ongoing consultations and data analyses. The HPC domain CODBCB will be used by the Division of Biostatistics and Computational Biology to accelerate the current and future projects that need high-performance computing. The CODBCB will particularly benefit research projects integrating big data analysis and artificial intelligence (AI), but it will be of value for all college researchers. Please contact Division Director Dr. Xian Jin Xie if you need to know more details.

The CODBCB node consists of 32 CPU cores with 384GB memory and one Titan V GPU accelerator.
