Information Commons

Information Commons is a "fast and easily searchable and accessible repository of all UCSF clinical data and models, and related basic science & population data, that enables research and discovery of new health insights underlying precision medicine".

Computational Biology and Informatics (CBI)

"The CBI provides computational biology support and computational and data infrastructure to facilitate cutting-edge cancer-related research at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (HDFCCC)."

Resource for Biocomputing, Visualization, and Informatics (RBVI)

"Any researcher with a legitimate scientific need for access to the software tools and/or visualization hardware we have available, or the various databases we maintain, can apply for a RBVI User Account."

Other UC and External

UC San Diego Supercomputer Center (HPC@UC)

"The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), an Organized Research Unit of the University of California, San Diego, is making major high-performance computing resources available to the UC community."

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

"Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction. It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment."

Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

"GCP frees you from the overhead of managing infrastructure, provisioning servers and configuring networks. To let innovators innovate and let coders, well, just code."
