OXFORD — A recent expansion of the Mississippi Center for Supercomputing Research’s multi-core computer cluster at the University of Mississippi (UM) has boosted the center’s computing capacity by 20 percent.

The upgrade to Sequoia, a multi-core SGI computer cluster, was possible thanks to a National Science Foundation grant, one of six five-year, multi-million-dollar Research Infrastructure Improvement grants awarded to Mississippi’s public universities this year.

“Big computers are my research lab,” said Gregory Tschumper, associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry who serves as the primary investigator and project director at UM. “Having MCSR here allows me to do research that’s competitive with any other in the nation and the world. Without its resources, it would be difficult to compete with other institutions in the region.”
