Bioinformatics and bioinformatic support

Bioinformatics capabilities available at BeGenDiv include powerful computer resources through a High-Performance Computing Partnership with the Freie Universität Berlin and include the Soroban (112 nodes; 1344 cores, 5.25 TB RAM) and Allegro (ca. 1000 cores, 3.5 TB RAM) clusters. The Bioinformatics team at BeGenDiv is in constant development and frequently receives new BSc, MSc and PhD Bioinformatics students from FU-Berlin and worldwide universities who work on specific projects.

Bioinformatics support for projects includes supervision of students, teaching and development of specific pipelines for Biodiversity studies lacking computational tools.
