Other Training

BSC offers a comprehensive and multidimensional training program to our researchers. In addition the the specialized subject matter training. The Professional Training Program support students and staff to develop research, innovation and functional skills on the right cognitive level.

Appart from the regular HPC related courses and other planned events we also organise a number of ad hoc courses and lectures linked to outside events or jointly with our research and education partners.

During the last years, the computing ecosystem is becoming more and more heterogeneous. On the one hand, trends in computer architectures focus on providing different computing devices (CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs) and memories in a single chip or computing node, with the aim of providing better computing devices for the different types of algorithms and applications. On the other hand, distributed platforms such as Clusters, Grids and Clouds, which have been traditionally composed by many homogeneous nodes, are starting to be composed of heterogeneous nodes including processors with different cores, accelerators and memory capacities. This heterogeneity is required to achieve better computing performance with lower energy consumption and must be managed at different levels.

Proteins and their intricate network of interactions are the mainstay of any cellular process. Dissecting these networks at atomic detail is invaluable, as this paves the route to a mechanistic understanding of biological function and provides the first essential step toward the development of new drugs. Because of the challenges associated with experimental techniques, structural biologists have to resort more and more these days to complementary computational methods.
