The bioinformatics group in the Department of Computer Science at
Virginia Tech maintains its own local area network (LAN) in the
bioinformatics lab in 2160 Torgersen Hall and an integrated
computational, database, and web service system in 2070 Torgersen
Hall. Our LAN connects 3 Linux servers, 26 Linux workstations, 7 Apple
OS X workstations, a Windows computer, and a 22-node cluster.
Computers in the LAN share a 1-gigabit ethernet switched connection
and have separate 100-megabit ethernet connections to the campus
network. The servers have a total of 40 gigabytes of RAM and three
terabytes of disk space. They currently support 100 gigabytes of
biological databases for use in bioinformatics research at Virginia Tech.
