Biowulf High Performance Computing at the NIH

The NIH HPC group plans, manages and supports high-performance computing systems specifically for the intramural NIH community. These systems include Biowulf, a 90,000+ processor Linux cluster; Helix, an interactive system for file transfer and management, Sciware, a set of applications for desktops, and Helixweb, which provides a number of web-based scientific tools. We provide access to a wide range of computational applications for genomics, molecular and structural biology, mathematical and graphical analysis, image analysis, and other scientific fields.
