Welcome to GenomeDK!

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

Give me the numbers

The GenomeDK HPC cluster at Aarhus University 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 6 PB. Do you want to know more?

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.
