Computational Biomolecular Research

The Centre of Excellence for Computational Biomolecular Research (BioExcel) is operating towards advancement and support of the HPC software ecosystem in the life science domain. Research and expertise covers structural and functional studies of the main building blocks of living organisms (proteins, DNA, membranes etc.) and techniques for modelling their interactions ranging from quantum to coarse-grained models up to the level of a single cell. Work in the centre is focused on

Improving the performance and scalability of major simulation packages for more efficient usage of HPC resources

Improving the usability of existing and devising new workflows and environments with associated data integration

Competence-building among both academia and industry through extensive training programs and promotion of best practices.

The CoE consortium is dedicated to establishing the centre as a long-term support structure for the needs of academic/non-profit and industrial users (pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries); ISVs and academic code developers; national and commercial resource providers.
