Biostatistics & Bioinformatics

Biostatistics & BioinformaticsThe Biostatistics & Bioinformatics Core provides expertise and infrastructure for various types of analysis as well as for acquisition, storage and distribution of complex datasets. Core personnel have expertise in IT infrastructure, programming, web/database management, data mining, statistics and bio/chemoinformatics consult and assist in study design, implementation, and analysis, and develop new software tools to support research activities of other IMTM cores.

In addition to standard equipment and common software resources the computing infrastructure of the core includes two high performance computing clusters:

  1. IBM BladeCenter H (276 cores, 39 TB):
    • 23x BladeCenter HS22 (48 GB, 2x Intel Xeon CPU X5650, 2.67 GHz, 6 cores),
    • 38 TB SATA + 1 TB SAS
  2. IBM Flex System (1008 cores, 835 TB):
    • 42x CPU Node (2x Intel Xeon E5-2650 8C, 2.0 GHz),
    • 18x GPU Node 48 GB (2x Intel Xeon E5-2650 8C, 2.0 GHz, NVidia Tesla M2090),
    • 2x High GPU Power Node 384 GB (2x Intel Xeon E5-2650 8C, 2.0 GHz, NVidia Tesla M2090)
    • 1x Backup Node (2x Intel Xeon E5-2650 8C, 2.0 GHz)
    • 24x 300 GB + 276x 3TB
