LUBI-LSGA will provide an extended service for bioinformatics. For that purpose we will have dedicated software installed. For a list of current installations at LUNARC see Bioinformatics software.
There is now dedicated hardware installed, the so-called LUBI nodes, that have more RAM and larger disks than what is provided by the standard accounts at LUNARC. There are now 5 nodes for use with non-sensitive data.
For research groups having extensive needs there is an option to buy their own blades for their use only, or be shared by others when there are free computing cycles available. LUNARC has an agreement with the suppliers, thereby having good prices that any group can take benefit of. The maintenance of these blades will be taken care of by the LUBI application expert and LUNARC staff.
LUBI-LSENS is a secure system within LUNARC where GDPR-compliant data management and analysis will be performed. The hardware has recently been installed and is now available. These LUBI-LSENS nodes are meant to be used with sensitive data and fulfill all Swedish requirements for sensitive data. The resource is freely available for all researchers at LU. Application for a project using these nodes has to be done through the LUBI application expert, Gerard Schaafsma (gerard.schaafsma at lunarc.lu.se).
Additional bioinformatics services are available at national level from the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS). LUBI-LSGA is a complementary and dedicated service at Lund University. NBIS has four bioinformaticians at Lund University.
At Lund University, NBIS arranges regular bioinformatics drop-ins where researchers are welcome to come to network as well as discuss their bioinformatics needs. Drop-in dates are available on the website https://www.biology.lu.se/services/national-bioinformatics-infrastructure.
