National Agricultural Biocomputing Portal has been developed and upgraded to provide a single point of access to High Performance Computing (HPC) resources established under National Agricultural Innovation Project (NAIP), ICAR, New Delhi, sub project “Establishment of National Agricultural Bioinformatics Grid in ICAR”. The Super-Computing grid consists of following infrastructure at ICAR-IASRI, New Delhi

(i)30 nodes Linux cluster with two masters,

(ii)16 nodes Hadoop cluster with one master,

(iii)16 nodes GP/GPU cluster with one master and

(iv)One SMP of 64 cores with 1.5 TB RAM

(v)One SMP of 128 cores with 1.0 TB RAM

(vi)Web/Database/Application servers.

Apart from this, five mini Super Computers were also installed and configured at five domain institutions i.e. 16 nodes Linux based cluster with one master at ICAR-NBPGR New Delhi, ICAR-NBAGR Karnal, ICAR-NBFGR Lucknow, ICAR-NBAIM Mau and ICAR-NBAII, Bangalore forms a National Agricultural Bioinformatics Grid (NABG) in the country. Various bioinformatics applications/software/tools have been installed on these clusters.The portal is designed for seamless integration with grid computing resources and providing services such as application services, grid information services, user authentication services, data management services, e-mail notification services etc.
