About Computerome

The Danish Nationale Supercomputer for Life Sciences (a.k.a. Computerome) is installed at the DTU National Lifescience Center at Technical University of Denmark.

The computer hardware is funded with grants from Technical University of Denmark (DTU)University of Copenhagen (KU) and Danish e-infrastructure Cooperation (DeiC) - also, it is the official Danish ELIXIR Node.

Computerome's present compute resources consist of 16704 CPU cores with 102 TeraBytes of memory, connected to 8 PetaBytes of High-performance storage, and with a total peak performance of more than 483 TeraFLOPS (483 million million floating-point operations per second).

It debuted in November 2014 at #121 on TOP500 Supercomputing Sites .

Please see the Hardware page for further details.

The Supercomputer is the stepping stone towards Søren Brunak’s vision, brain child of Peter Løngreen. This system is transforming the vision into reality every day, playing a crucial role in advancing bioinformatics and healthcare.

For more information please contact Søren Brunak and Peter Løngreen.

Access to Computerome

Access to Computerome is available to everyone interested in Life Sciences and we encourage both internal and external users to use the facility.

To inquire about access, please contact Ali Syed, DTU Bioinformatics, on E-mail: or phone: (+45) 60 90 46 46.

Access requests should be sent via E-Mail to Computerome Support, and must include organization E-mail and mobile phone number for the requested account(s).

Setup and Security framework

The Danish National Supercomputer for Life Sciences has an ultra high-density footprint, and is installed in two 500kW containerized Tier IV data center modules.

The system is designed using the bioinformatics reference architecture developed by CBS over the past 20 years and using the standard practices in the industry. It has a full set of comprehensive tools for both management and usage of the system. To get acquainted with the physical Hardware setup please visit here.

The comprehensive access and security protocol is described below.

Usage of Computerome

Please consult the Getting Started page for information about how to use the Computerome system.

Tips and Tricks

This Wiki is primarily concerned with the setup and basic usage of Computerome itself.

However, if you have some information to share about usage of specific tools, use cases on how to best do certain things, or maybe even full tutorials, we encourage all our users to update the Tips and Tricks page that we have set up for this purpose.

Computerome and the Tryggve project

Computerome is a building-block in the Tryggve project that is working to establish a Nordic platform for collaboration on sensitive data, and that is funded by NeIC and the ELIXIR nodes in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

The Tryggve project welcomes use-cases from researchers collaborating on sensitive data with researchers in other Nordic countries. Please follow instructions on the Tryggve Getting Started page.

As part of the Computerome engagement in Tryggve, Computerome is committed to the Tryggve Code of Conduct.
