Nuclea, Clark to Use New Compute Cluster to Support Proteomic and Metabolomic Center


Nuclea Biotechnologies and Clark University will use a compute cluster installed earlier this year on the Clark campus to support a planned proteomic and metabolomic center.

The new center, which the partners announced this week, will offer bioinformatics resources that will allow the partners to analyze, identify, and quantify molecular targets as part of their biomedical research, clinical diagnostic discovery, and drug development efforts.

In addition to bioinformatics capabilities, the new center will also provide sample preparation equipment, gas and liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry instruments, and nuclear magnetic resonance facilities, Nuclea said.

Clark University was one of three institutions selected by the Pittsfield, Mass.-based firm to house new clusters aimed at providing resources for regional educational research as well as to boost its in-house compute capabilities (BI 04/08/2011).
