NeSI provides a range of services, people, expertise, and information to help computational research projects become reality

NeSI Genomics Aotearoa Metagenomics Summer School

A partnership approach to building skills in New Zealand's genomics research sector

Together, NeSI and Genomics Aotearoa have the domain knowledge, technical skills, and motivation to address the skills gap facing New Zealand’s genomics and bioinformatics sector.
NeSI Case Study Cyprien Bosserelle NIWA

A fast model for predicting floods and storm damage

"Rendering this grid in the traditional way is not trivial – it would take longer to render the result than run the model each time I wanted to find errors. I approached NeSI and we started talking about visualisation."

NeSI Case Study Yoshihiro Kaneko GNS Science Hikurangi

How multithreading and vectorisation can speed up seismic simulations by 40%

GNS Science researchers are producing detailed images of the 3D structure and geometry of the Hikurangi mega-thrust region using a technique called seismic tomography.

NeSI case study Giacomo Giorli NIWA

Machine learning for marine mammals

“By understanding the abundance and distribution of different marine mammals in New Zealand, we can inform conservation policy, management of marine resources, licensing for offshore activity and create better environmental impact assessments.”

New Zealand 2100: The future through high-resolution wave modelling

"I’m lucky to have access to a cluster like NeSI’s. Without it, I’d be running this model for years, rather than about a month.”

NeSI Case Study Alexis Marshal University of Waikato

Parallel processing for ocean life

"We contacted NeSI because we were going from trying to assemble 100,000 individual 150 nucleotide base sequences, to trying to assemble 1.4 billion. We were having computational issues with memory, but also time."

NeSI Case Study Jon Tunnicliffe University of Auckland

NeSI support helps keep NZ rivers healthy

"It’s been helpful to have routines optimised through NeSI assistance... it’s easier for students and researchers to put their data into the model, experiment with the governing parameters, and then observe what comes out of it."

NeSI Case Study Kannan Ridings University of Auckland nanowires

Heating up nanowires with HPC

"Without modern HPC servers, a lot of research today in nanotechnology, physics and science in general just wouldn’t be possible."
Subject: 
Kendall Clements NeSI Case Study Endeavour Fund

Making waves in global food production technology

“The molecular work associated with this research generates huge amounts of data, and NeSI’s resources provide critical computing infrastructure.”
Subject: 
Oliver Stevenson case study

Modelling the careers of cricket players

“Using NeSI allows us to analyse a larger number of players, in a shorter space of time.”
