The Barbara K. Ostrom (1978) Bioinformatics & Computing Facility 


The Barbara K. Ostrom (1978) Bioinformatics & Computing Facility is a shared institutional resource providing KI investigators with support, assistance and training in a wide range of bioinformatics topics. The core also maintains a high performance computing resource offering many bioinformatics applications, substantial processing power and secure storage and provides support for desktop computing and poster printing. Access is available to all members of the MIT community, to the extent permitted by available capacity. In recognition of funding support, priority access is given to members of the Core’s sponsoring entities (Koch Institute, MIT Biology, MIT Biological Engineering and MIT Center for Environmental Health Science) and NCI-funded research projects. In special circumstances, access may be available to non-MIT users (details available on request from the Facility Director, Charlie Whittaker)

Additional information is available on the Barbara K. Ostrom (1978) Bioinformatics & Computing Facility's website.

The Bioinformatics & Computing Core is supported in part by funding provided to the Koch Institute from a National Cancer Institute Cancer Center Support Grant.
