The NIH Library in Building 10 provides three bioinformatics workstations in the main Reading Room on the first level of the Library. These high performance computers are dedicated to high-throughput data analysis.
Loaded on workstations 1 and 3 is a link to the Bioinformatics Support Program portal, Cn3D, Cytoscape, and JMP. Other applications are unique to each computer; see the description for each workstation below, or use your mouse to hover over the info icon next to the workstation name.
Please help us assess the impact of these workstations on your research by citing them in your publications:
This work was made possible, in part, by the use of an NIH Library Bioinformatics Workstation (http://nihlibrary.nih.gov/bioinformatics).
Then, send us a citation for the publication to email@example.com.

Overnight runs are permissable. However, they do slow down the workstation computer so please place a reservation as early as possible the next day to retrieve the data. A note may be placed at the workstation asking other users to not shut down the running application. NOTE: The NIH Library is not responsible for any lost data.
Reservations may be made three months in advance.
The bioinformatics workstation computers are designated for use by NIH staff and select HHS Agency (ACF, AHRQ, AOA, HRSA, IHS, OS, PSC, and SAMHSA) personnel.
The computers are intended for bioinformatics programs only up to a maximum of four hours daily per customer.
