High Performance Computing Through CIBR

High Performance Computing

The CIBR Center offers a medium scale high performance Linux cluster purchased by a collaborative agreement between CIBR, and the Ludtke, Chiu, and Barth Labs. Each group that has contributed financially to the purchase of the cluster is entitled to a proportional amount of overall compute capacity of the cluster. In theory, the cluster can provide up to 5,000,000 CPU-hr of computation annually, however, it is impossible to keep such a cluster fully loaded all of the time, and typical clusters run at ~60-80% of capacity, and allocations reflect this.

  • CIBR Faculty can request initial allocations of 10,000 CPU-hr on the Linux cluster by sending an email to Steve Ludtke, Ph.D.
  • The request must come from the PI, not students/postdocs in the lab, as allocations are made on a per-faculty basis, and the professor must decide how to allocate the time among people in his/her lab.

In manuscripts, grant proposals, presentations, and other publications, please acknowledge the assistance from the CIBR Center by including a statement such as the following:

"We gratefully acknowledge the assistance and computing resources provided by the CIBR Center for Computational and Integrative Biomedical Research of Baylor College of Medicine in the preparation of this work."
