Advancing Agricultural Research through High-Performance Computing

Project Impacts

In working to solve some of today's most challenging agriculture and food security issues, the AAR-HPC project aligns the efforts of Mississippi State University and the USDA-Agriculture Research Service to:

  • Increase the high-performance computing capabilities of the USDA-ARS with the addition of a new supercomputer housed at Mississippi State University's High-Performance Computing Collaboratory.

  • Promote the exchange of knowledge with the delivery of training and workshops by Mississippi State University faculty and staff in the area of geospatial technology, epidemiology, bioinformatics, data-science, and landscape ecology; and

  • Support the development of collaborative research projects that analyze large volumes and types of data using a high-performance computing environment to develop tools and algorithms that are broadly applicable within agriculture research.
