Research Computing is responsible for the advanced research computing infrastructure at the Norwich Bioscience Institutes (John Innes Centre, Earlham Institute, Quadram Institute and The Sainsbury Laboratory) providing High Performance Computing (HPC), storage, middleware and application platforms, enabling World-class research in biological science.
Our engineers are skilled in a wide range of disciplines covering High Performance Computing, storage, virtualisation, private cloud, system development and administration, system procurement and data centre management. We sit on the ‘same side of the bench‘ as our scientists, and actively contribute to research output.
We also evaluate new hardware/software, with a particular interest in cutting-edge approaches to energy-efficient processing.
Research Computing is one of several professional departments within NBI Partnership Ltd, providing a variety of support services to the Institutes.
