We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The JRC's High Performance Computing facility (HPC) hosts several computing platforms to support the analysis of the growing volume of data, e.g. as generated by the NGS-Bioinformatics infrastructure.
Specifically, the HPC facility of the JRC is used for the processing and management any-biological-derived information, for example, DNA alignment, simulation and modelling of RNA and DNA and protein structures as well as molecular interactions. It can also be used for other applications that require to quickly process high huge volumes of data using complex calculations.
