Specific research programs and areas in the Center for Informatics at SNU are set by the individual faculty, who nucleate inter-disciplinary research in select areas, exploiting synergies between overlapping programs in one or more schools at SNU. Currently active areas of interest include:
Bioinformatics and Cheminformatics
Design of Organic Dyes and Organic/Polymer Semiconductors
Computational facilities at the SNU Informatics Center include Magus, a 32-node, 512-core IBM HPC cluster, delivering a theoretical peak performance of 10.649 TF. Each compute node is powered with dual Intel Xeon E5-2670 8C 2.6 GHz 20 MB cache 1600 MHz processors. A high-speed Infiniband switch provides the primary interconnect. Two Master nodes are loaded with 24 TB of Raw Storage. Two GPU nodes are also networked to the HPC cluster. Additionally several stand-alone Linux computers are used for teaching and research purposes, and as license servers.
