Facility Details

Fast internet access is essential for genomics, proteomics, image analysis and collaboration in modern genetics research. The Smart Internet2 Computer and Video-Collaboration Informatics Facility has been established by the RCMI-funded Center for Study of Gene Structure and Function (Gene Center) to enhance the analytic and communication capabilities of the Gene Center’s researchers by exploiting Internet2 in conjunction with a smart computer and video-conferencing laboratory. Real-time interactions can occur between individuals or among groups at disparate locations. The facility is equipped with up-to-date video conferencing equipment in situ and with portable video-conferencing equipment for live communication of experimental procedures from the lab. The facility also contains twenty computers networked to gigabit speed data lines for research informatics projects and instruction. Smart software routes requests to Internet2-enabled resources through the Internet2 / Abilene backbone. Two adjacent rooms house rack-mounted servers that support the Gene Center, and accommodate the manager/operator.
