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

Modelling dispersal and ecological competition

Researching millions of years of ecological colonisation, competition and re-colonisation in minutes

High performance computing helps save the NZ stick insect

Until recently processing their insect DNA sequence data collected from the next generation sequencing-by-synthesis platforms took one whole week per individual; even when using a fast multi-core desktop Linux machine with plenty of RAM.

What’s the link between marriage rules and high performance computing?

Using high performance computing to address genetic problems presents researchers with an opportunity to advance the biological sciences. A researcher at Massey is harnessing HPC to study the effects of social behaviour on small, isolated populations.

High performance computing’s role in biosecurity

NeSI's high performance computing facilities are helping a Lincoln University researcher combat biosecurity breaches by speeding up genomic analysis and the ability to identify invasive pests.
