Computer superpower strengthens attempts to combat common diseases
Date:3/5/2009

e sequencing platform that already exists at Uppsala University. At present there are three new technology sequencing machines, which make Uppsala University the largest player in the Nordic countries in this field. This position will now be strengthened even further.

Large-scale computations and large-scale storage, processing, and analysis of data play an ever greater role in many scientific fields. The Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) announced, together with KAW, that funding was available for resources for framework of SNIC's general resources. KAW contributed investment capital and SNIC operational and user support. Two of eight applications submitted were granted.

"Uppsala University hit the jackpot, since both projects have Uppsala researchers involved. One is for research on new energy materials that Professor Olle Eriksson is conducting, with colleagues, and the other is this visionary genome-sequencing research," says Ingela Nystrm.

The new computer system for DNA sequencing will be located at Uppsala Multidisciplinary Center for Advanced Computational Science (UPPMAX) and will be run by the Center's systems experts. Since its establishment in 2003, UPPMAX has provided researchers, both locally and nationally, with computational power from a number of computer clusters. A previous allocation from SNIC in 2008 is earmarked for a new cluster of some 2000 computing cores and is under procurement. This new grant will add yet another cluster.

"What's more, our activities are expanding to include extensive data storage, some 500 terabytes. Some data will have to be stored up to ten years, which places special demands on the technology," says Ingela Nystrm.

SNIC has six member centers in Sweden (from north to south: HPC2N in Ume, UPPMAX in Uppsala, PDC in Stockholm, NSC in Linkping, C3SE in Gteborg, and Lunarc in Lund). With the two latest grants to UPPMAX, Uppsala University will play a significan
