Our Center has invested heavily in licensing to provide personnel and collaborators access to next-generation software and small molecule libraries/databases. Consequently, the CIT has ten shared computer workstations for data acquisition, control, and analysis. Three of these workstations are dedicated to offline data visualization, processing, and analysis.
For the purpose of data handling, our shared resource center has a dedicated full-time computer programmer/ software analyst to assist in streamlining data analysis, developing in-house programs to support workflows, maintaining and updating all data workstations, and automating data storage backup of all instrumentation. Complementary, the CIT houses a 24 TB RAID storage bank where all data (original and metadata) is automatically archived onto backup servers to support the breadth of CIT activities.
