Off-Campus Resources

GENI (Global Environment for Network Innovations)

GENI is a new, nationwide suite of infrastructure supporting "at scale" research in networking, distributed systems, security, and novel applications. Supported by the National Science Foundation, it provides a virtual laboratory for networking and distributed systems research and education available without charge for research and classroom use.

Life Sciences Shared Resources @ Dartmouth College

Norris Cotton Cancer Center provides a portfolio of Life Sciences Shared Resources: specialized equipment and instrumentation, as well as services and centralized consultation to support the application of these Shared Resources to research.

These resources are available to UNH researchers at the same cost as Dartmouth faculty would pay.

The Shared Resources portfolio includes:

  • Bioinformatics
  • Biostatistics
  • Clinical Pharmacology
  • DartMouse - Speed Congenics
  • Genomics
  • GeoSpatial Resource
  • Immune Monitoring and Flow Cytometry
  • Irradiation & Small-Animal Imaging
  • Molecular Biology
  • Office of Clinical Research
  • Pathology Translational Research
  • Transgenics & Genetic Constructs

National Center for Atmospheric Research Allocations

NCAR provides large computing resources for university researchers in atmospheric, oceanic, and related sciences. To access these supercomputers, storage systems, and other resources, users must apply for allocations, which NCAR makes available through several facilities.

National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS)

NCGAS provides genome assembly and other analytical support (bioinformatics, computation, optimized software, and storage) for NSF-funded researchers undertaking genome science critical to biological discovery.

Qualifying NSF-funded research projects can have access to NCGAS services - typically at no cost - simply by filling out a request form that documents its status.

National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and the Blue Waters Petascale Computing Project

The NCSA and Blue Waters petascale computing project is a National Science Foundation (NSF) supported facility that represents a tremendous leap in the computational and data science capabilities available to support researchers across the nation and all scientific and engineering disciplines, ranging from astronomy to microbiology to seismology.


NH Grid/SuperCOmputing Ventures in Education and Research

The NH Grid is a high-speed computing network based at Dartmouth College that is available to researchers at NH colleges and universities in the INBRE and EPSCoR programs.


World Community Grid

The World Community Grid provides free access to dedicated virtual supercomputing resources and a platform to engage the public in their research for scientists conducting cutting-edge research in health, poverty and sustainability, including dedicated resources to studying issues affected by climate change, such as resilience of staple food crops and watershed management.

Special consideration will be given to proposals addressing climate change, such as:
  • Climate and meteorology: climate modeling, severe weather warning
  • Climate change adaptation: sea level modeling, improving crop or livestock yields and resilience, watershed modeling
  • Climate change mitigation: renewable energy modeling, renewable energy materials research
