Research IT

Research IT picks up where traditional desktop support ends and collaborates with researchers to resolve complex technology hurdles.

Research IT focuses on solving difficult computational problems in collaboration with researchers at Iowa State University. Examples might include:

I am working with genome assembly and need a high-memory server.

We have developed a computational pipeline and wish to optimize it because it keeps crashing/takes weeks to run/isn't automated.

We have no source control in place and need training on best practices.

We are looking for larger computational resources to solve our needs.
