High Performance Computing

for the

Life Sciences

The Exascience Lab researches the application of High Performance Computing (or HPC) to problems in the life sciences and industries. It is a collaboration between members from the pharmaceutical industry, the technology industry, and the research sector. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/41/Caffeine_Molecule.png

The research of the lab spans from applications and algorithms, across software, to the impact of new HPC hardware. To learn more about what problems we target and how we tackle them, please see the section on our research. To read more about our partners, please see the partner section.

The following video, shot at the “Big Data Analytics for the Life Sciences Industry” symposium the lab organized on June 1&2 2015, gives an overview of the lab’s goals through short interviews with international experts in the field. Videos from last years’ event can still be found on the ExaScience Life Lab YouTube channel.
