Enabling the Genomic Revolution in NC...
The NC BioGrid project was established in the Fall of 2001 to research and implement new grid computing technologies that will enable researchers and educators throughout North Carolina to take full advantage of the genomic revolution.
The vision for the NC BioGrid was provided by the High Performance Computing and Data Storage Focus Group of the NC Genomics and Bioinformatics Consortium (NCGBC). The NCGBC is facilitated through the NC Biotech Center.
MCNC, a not-for-profit R&D company with a long history of collaboration with the North Carolina university community, seeded the NC BioGrid Testbed by providing the servers, software and IT expertise from the NC Supercomputing Center and the network infrastructure through NCREN.
