Our newsletter for the summer 2019 is out! Read it here.

GenomeDK is a national high-performance computing facility for bioinformatics and life sciences managed by Center for Genome Analysis and Personalized Medicine, located at Aarhus University, Denmark.

We know that you’re busy so here are some shortcuts:

Give me the numbers

GenomeDK comprises of 215 nodes (4352 cores) connected with 10GigE/Infiniband. Each node has from 16 to 36 cores and either 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB, 384 GB, or 1 TB of RAM.

The cluster has been designed specifically for bioinformatic workloads and has a storage capacity of 12 PB. Do you want to know more?

Cite us!

We provide GenomeDK as a resource to research. If you publish results from computations performed on GenomeDK, it is important that you acknowledge and/or cite GenomeDK in your publications. We recommend phrasing it like this:

Some/all of the computing for this project was performed on the GenomeDK cluster. We would like to thank GenomeDK and Aarhus University for providing computational resources and support that contributed to these research results.

Where do I start?

If you’re new to GenomeDK, please read through the Getting started chapter. This will help do common things like handling data, submitting jobs and installing software, as well as how to request an account.

Once you’re comfortable with performing routine tasks on the cluster, read the Best practices, which contains suggestions and patterns for organizing your projects and keeping your research reproducible.

If you want a friendly presentation of how the cluster works, see How does the cluster work?.
