The R&D platform for scientists, by scientists

The R&D platform for scientists, by scientists

Our platform provides scientists powerful cloud workstations in AWS with cutting-edge scientific software.

With our platform, scientists can configure and launch ComputeBenches, user-friendly workstations for data analysis, simulation, and visualization.

With a software blueprint, an expert-curated collection of pre-installed computational tools, a scientist can get started in minutes and then customize every aspect of their bench.

The R&D platform for scientists, by scientists

Expert-curated scientific software

Get started in minutes with one of our software blueprints, expert-curated collections of domain-specific tools:

  • Metagenomics: Kraken2, Bracken, metaSPAdes, QIIME2
  • RNA-seq analysis: DeSeq2, Salmon, STAR
  • Single-cell genomics: ArchR, CELLxGENE, Scanpy, Seurat
  • Many more
  • Leave the maintenance to us. We regularly upgrade our blueprints.
  • Tailor your workstation by using your favorite package management tool or installing packages from source. With root access, you can customize every aspect of your bench.
Scientist-friendly interface

Scientist-friendly interface

Connect to your bench with your favorite web-based interactive development environment.

  • JupyterLab
  • RStudio Server
  • VS Code Server
  • Custom web servers, such as Shiny apps
  • Use SSH to access your bench from any terminal.
  • Access all of your data, visualizations, code, and programs with one login.
Powerful and configurable hardware

Powerful and configurable hardware

  • Select from 2-192 vCPUs and 4-1,024 GB memory for the smallest to the largest jobs.
  • Attach NVIDIA GPUs to train and run AI models, such as to predict protein structures with AlphaFold.
  • Choose your preferred AWS region.
  • With high-speed storage, your data, code, and programs are saved. This combines the power of the cloud with the ease of use of PCs.
