Life Sciences Computing

Last updated March 13, 2023

The Center for Advanced Research Computing (CARC) provides access to life sciences resources, such as reference genomes and protein and nucleotide sequences databases.

In 2021, CARC completed a collaboration between Amgen, Dornsife, and ITS to establish access to two cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) instruments for USC researchers. The microscopes utilize a comprehensive data management and computational processing platform developed by ITS and CARC.
