Smithsonian Genome Collection

This is the section of the site devoted to support of the emerging biodiversity genomics community at the Smithsonian. Our activities include adapting the Hydra high-performance-computing cluster to better meet the needs of next-generation gene sequencing and assembly. We are also working on infrastructure to integrate the developing compute pipelines that process the sequencing data in the all the ways necessary, including the need to move large files back and forth from other research centers and the cloud.
