Climate Modeling Group : CMG|
The goals of the Climate Modeling Group are to develop scalable, portable, high-performance climate and weather applications and supporting software infrastructure. We collaborate with other computer and computational scientists to apply new software tools and techniques to climate science.
Bioinformatics : Compbio|
Bioinformatics is the study of biological systems through the use of computational tools and the application of methods from computer science, mathematics, and information theory. At Argonne, our goal is to develop new methods and technologies for acquiring, organizing, analyzing, and visualizing such data.
Distributed Systems Laboratory : DSL|
Under the leadership of Dr. Ian Foster, the DSL hosts research and development activities designed to realize the potential of "Grids" for computational science and engineering. Together with Carl Kesselman's Center for Grid Technologies at the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute, we are co-founders of the Globus AllianceTM, a highly-collaborative international and multidisciplinary effort to make Grid computing a reality.
Futures Laboratory : FL|
The Argonne Futures Laboratory performs basic and applied research in advanced communications, collaboration, and visualization technologies (e.g., teleimmersion) to enable the development of wide-area collaborative computational science. Our focus is on the development and evaluation of high-end technologies and systems that extend and complement commercially available tools and resources.
Laboratory for Advanced Numerical Simulations : LANS|
In LANS, we are building on the tradition of excellence begun as early as the 1970s with the development of the numerical software packages EISPACK, LINPACK, FUNPACK, and MINPACK. Our work ranges from algorithm design to development of software tools and technology to advanced simulations in application of interest to DOE.
Laboratory for Scalable Parallel System Software : RADIX|
Our mission is to develop the technologies required to dramatically increase the productivity of scientists developing applications for parallel supercomputers. The focus is fourfold: integration of parallel programming tools, reuse of parallel program components, development of scientific computing toolkits and portable libraries, and exploration of requirements of future parallel computers.
MCS Systems Group : Systems|
The MCS Systems groups researches the advancement and optimization of Systems Administration, and develops tools to that end. Among the tools the group develops or co-develops are: bcfg2, Hostbase, and Userbase.
