IBED has a computational support team that provides state-of-the-art expertise in computational tools and the wealth of data that are fundamental to ongoing scientific research and education. We work in close collaboration with IBED researchers and students to transfer our specialized knowledge of bioinformatics, database management, scientific programming and geodata management and processing.
We are available to IBED scientific staff and students to help:
The Computational Support team currently has five dedicated members and is part of the Lab & Infrastructure unit that supports the four IBED departments. You can contact us at email@example.com, or see our personal pages for detailed descriptions and useful links related to our individual areas of expertise.
We actively collaborate with SURF, the Faculty of Science specialist ICT support group (FEIOG) and the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences (SILS) to coordinate high-performance computing and dedicated, secure storage for unusually large datasets. We are linked to the institute’s GIS-Studio which assists students and staff with spatial data analysis and provides them with up-to-date fieldwork equipment. We also contribute to tools and facilities developed by IBED departments.
We are also available to help you discover and use existing UvA resources related to:
