About Us

The National Omics Data Encyclopedia (NODE) is an integrated, compatible, comparable, and scalable multi-omics resource platform that supports flexible data management and effective data release. NODE implements a hierarchical omics data structure that featuring datasets not only from biological cohorts but also from rich microenvironmental studies submitted or collected from various sources dominantly. NODE operates as a working platform, which provides functions around the whole life cycle of omics data, from data archive, data requests/responses to data sharing, data analysis, data review and publish. NODE is developed and maintained by the Data Warehouse R&D Platform of Bio-Med Big Data Center, Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health, Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Computing and Storage Platform

Large and Secure Storage

The NODE system is built on a large network access storage system, currently its capacity is close to 3 PetaByte . The storage system is equipped with the low latency network such as Infiniband and 10Gb and with advance Cluster File system, it also can be scale up to 40 PB under a single volume. The NODE system is protected by large-scale Tape backup library, the data can be securly backuped and restored daily by the different policies such as snapshot, incremental and full backups.

High Performance Computing

We have provided High Performance Computing Cluster with more than 200 computing nodes, the cluster peak performance can reach to 30TFlops .
