University of Illinois announces Center for Digital Agriculture

October 9, 2019

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has announced the creation of the Center for Digital Agriculture (CDA), a new center that brings together agricultural producers, researchers, and industries to innovate on the technology that is transforming agriculture to feed and support a growing global population. The center, which will launch today at the Center for Digital Agriculture Industry Conference, seeks to develop digital solutions to agricultural roadblocks.

New Supercomputer to Aid Genomics Research

February 10, 2013

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) has gifted the Institute for Genomic Biology (IGB) a highly parallel shared memory supercomputer named Ember. Originally funded by the NSF, Ember will be managed by the High-Performance Biological Computing (HPCBio) group.

“We’ve been using Ember for a while now through the NCSA, mainly in computational genomics,” said Victor Jongeneel, Director of HPCBio. “It can perform a lot of tasks that our existing systems just can’t. Having it under our own management will allow us better access and faster results.”
