Science enabled by supercomputing

NSC provide leading edge high-performance computing resourses combined with advanced user and application support to about 150 Large and Medium Scale SNIC science projects. In total, we have about 800 scientists using our systems. The largest scientific area is materials physics, and related areas, with chemistry at a clear second place since many years. However, the fastest growing domain is biological sciences, especially bioinformatics.

Have a look at the list of current SNAC Large and Medium projects at NSC to get a feel for the kind of science projects that NSC's supercomputers are currently being used for.
