Supercomputer Use Guide

The supercomputer system Shirokane3 housed at the Human Genome Center (HGC) is the largest computer system in Japan in the field of genome research, and began operation in January 2015. We offer a large variety of choices for genome research, including Compute node Thin, Compute node Fat, Home disk, and Archive disk connected to external users via a high-speed network.

The HGC does not in any way restrict usage of the supercomputer to academic institutions; we also welcome those in the commercial/private sector.
