PSC Resources Available for Urgent COVID-19 Research
HPC Consortium Empowers Researchers to Accelerate Understanding of COVID-19 Virus
With the nation—and the world—disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we at PSC would like to offer our wishes for safety and health for all. To do our part in protecting the country’s wellbeing, we have been working with a national alliance of high-performance computing centers called the COVID-19 HPC Consortium. As part of this effort, computing time on our Bridges and Bridges-AI platforms is being allotted to urgent COVID-19 computational research. By making these resources available at no cost to scientists, we hope to support the development of new treatments to aid people who have contracted the virus and to limit its spread.
The COVID-19 HPC Consortium encompasses computing capabilities from some of the most powerful and advanced computers in the world. By contributing to this combined effort, we hope to empower researchers around the world to accelerate understanding of the COVID-19 virus and the development of treatments and vaccines to help address infections.
Scientists wishing to obtain computing time on Bridges and other resources in XSEDE, the National Science Foundation cyberinfrastructure in which PSC is a leading member, can find more information at https://www.xsede.org/covid19-hpc-consortium.
