For researchers running computation on the Savio high-performance compute cluster, data transfer can be a challenge. A new IPython notebook simplifies data transfer from the free Box collaboration platform to a Savio user’s scratch folder, and provides a template for users to develop their own algorithms that analyze data stored in Box.

Systems Neuroscientists use BRC services to understand the neural basis of perception

Evan Lyall

A childhood filled with Lego blocks, nature documentaries, science fiction novels, and some amazing science teachers led Evan Lyall to know that he wanted to study Bioengineering in college, but left him unsure of the direction he should go with that training.

Savio supports Doudna Lab biophysicist’s investigation of human protein production

Stephen Floor

“I have always believed in following the science,” says Stephen Floor, a postdoctoral researcher in the Doudna Lab, led by UC Berkeley Professor of Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Structural Biology, Jennifer Doudna. Floor’s self-described “circuitous” academic journey has taken him from computer science, to physics, and now, to molecular biology.

Savio capacity expands through faculty contributions

Galileo supercomputer wiring

Faculty contributions drove this year’s increase in computational capacity on Savio, the Berkeley Research Computing (BRC) Program’s shared High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster. Condo contributions, including those expected to be added by the end of the year, totaled 63 nodes and 1,368 cores: a capacity expansion of approximately 19%, valued at about $400,000.

Extending CollectionSpace: new webapps, new adopters, new features

CollectionSpace, the collections management software used by numerous campus museums and supported by Research IT, has been extended over the years by a number of additional web applications (webapps) which provide functionality not included in the core system. These webapps, like the regular CollectionSpace user interface (UI), run in a browser window and are accessible to anyone who has a computer with an internet connection and a suitable browser.

The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology uses CollectionSpace to move their collections and launch a Collections Portal

The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology uses CollectionSpace and applications built on the application’s RESTful API to help move their collection into recently improved collections facilities and tackle the new demands facing their museum today.

First UI milestone for CollectionSpace UI rewrite

CollectionSpace UI rewrite milestone 1

Ray Lee of UC Berkeley’s Research IT department is the lead for the CollectionSpace UI rewrite project, code-named “Drydock.” The following piece describes the state of the project after completing the first of four milestones. This work is funded by a recent grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to LYRASIS, CollectionSpace’s institutional home.
