About

Our facility provides development, trainings, expertise and resources for bioinformatics, primarly for academic research.

Provided resources include, but are not limited to, computing, biological databanks, software and collaboration tools.

Getting an account

To use most of our resources, you will need an account. Only a few of the web tools we host allow anonymous usage.

Using our resources

We host computing resources to submit jobs to a HPC cluster, a Galaxy instance, a private cloud, preinstalled software and databanks, and much more... See all our services.

Each account gets a free amount of data storage. If you have specific data storage requirements, we can discuss together to increase your quotas, however we expect you come with a clear data management plan (DMP).

If you plan to use our resources, please contact us before submitting your research project proposal to funding agencies. This will allow us to plan together your requirements and, if needed, the purchase of computing resources.

Working at GenOuest

We welcome newcomers, be it a permanent academic, a trainee or a developper working on one of our wonderful projects. In all cases, each one must follow the same rules and will be trained to our quality and compute environment.

What we do

Managing a computing facility also means managing operating systems, networks, user account and many other things. To do so, we develop internally many software. And because we use many open source software, almost all our developments are open source too. They are usually available at https://github.com/genouest.

We also have strong collaborations with other labs/entities such as IFB (in particular the cluster and cloud actions) and the Elixir European infrastructure.
