Can I work with Minerva?
Members of the Mount Sinai Medical School faculty, their students, and any outside collaborators who have the sponsorship of a faculty member are welcome to use Minerva.
What types of projects does Minerva handle?
Minerva is designed to handle a variety of computationally intensive scientific workflows. The variety spans the range of the data-intensive, data parallel types of projects that are prevalent in computational biology to the more numerical intensive, computationally parallel aspects of computational chemistry.
What are the benefits of working with Minerva?
The supercomputer provides massive computation and high-bandwidth, low-latency interconnections and storage, as well as 256GB of memory per node, all of which enables researchers to run faster and more complex projects. Minerva is also an easy-to-use platform for running your job, and it’s optimized for scientific computing jobs of the sort that are performed at Mount Sinai.
What is the process of using Minerva for a project?
