Variety of Tools and Operating Systems

Several computers running both Windows and the Macintosh (OS9 and OSX) are available to researchers in the laboratory. Several dual-CPU Linux servers are available for computation-intensive applications as well. A client/server system is in place for Windows users that allows account portability and data security through disk redundancy and nightly tape backups. Both CD and DVD writable drives are available for excess file storage and permanent archiving. Color and black-and-white laser printers are available for use. An LCD projector is also available for computer-based presentations.
