-Prof. Junhyong Kim, Penn Program in Single Cell Biology
Computing plays a growing role in research across all the disciplines in the School of Arts and Sciences, from electronic text corpora, to genomic analysis, to economic modeling and beyond. Research computation can deal with vast amounts of data on a previously unimaginable scale and can quickly perform iterations or parallel operations that would previously have taken weeks. SAS Computing can help guide researchers to choose and use the research tools that are best suited to their particular needs.
Our new website, “Information Technology for Research,” provides an introduction to the research services and resources that are available from SAS Computing.
