Biomedical Informatics - The Ohio State University
This is the High Performance Computing Lab in Department of Biomedical Informatics at OSU. Here, we conduct research on:
- combinatorial algorithms on peta-scale architectures to solve scientific computing problems,
- runtime middleware systems for emerging multi-core architectures, and
- new methods for large scale genomic and biomedical applications.
