“Computer processing is involved in every aspect of knowledge-generating activity, including data access, data integration, data provenance, as well as visualization, modeling, and theorizing.”
-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.
Anyone with an email account may periodically receive fraudulent messages purporting to be from a legitimate organization in an attempt to trick them into providing personal or financial information. This practice, known as 'phishing', can be most effective when coupled with a current event (such as the deadline for filing taxes, the return to classes, etc.). One recent example attempts to entice users with the promise of a pay-raise. Penn will never solicit your username, password or other private information (such as full or partial Social Security Number) in this manner.
