Research Support Computing
The Research Support Computing (RSC) group supports the MU research community. RSC solicits input from researchers and assesses needs for specialized, high-performance computing and networking resources.
RSC works to ensure that the campus' computing and networking infrastructure is positioned to support researchers and to provide education, training, and consulting for them to take full advantage of the resources available.
MU's Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Council is a group of faculty and staff representing each of MU's Schools and Colleges convened to provide input and guidance on the cyberinfrastructure necessary to support the wide variety of research and discovery activities across the University of Missouri.
The University of Missouri Bioinformatics Consortium (UMBC) provides high-performance computing and communications products and related services, including supercomputing-class hardware, software, mass-storage systems, file-storage areas, consulting services and training.
RSC has initiated the creation of the MU Research Network (MU RNet), an on-campus high-speed research network infrastructure that supports high-performance, network-based applications.
RSC laid the foundations for supporting MU researchers by establishing a high-speed networking connection to the National Science Foundation-funded very-high-speed Backbone Network Service (vBNS). Today the MU research community benefits from high-speed network connections to Internet2 through the Abilene network.
