In the Novosibirsk Akademgorodok established the Center for collective use "Bioinformatics".

As explained by the head of sector of high performance computing in bioinformatics, Institute of Cytology and Genetics, Russian Academy of Sciences Nikolai Podkolodny, the center of "Bioinformatics" is on the basis of the Siberian Supercomputer Center (SSCC) at the Institute of Computational Mathematics and Mathematical Geophysics SB RAS. Its mission — to create a network infrastructure, which will include pilot plants of various institutions, as well as computing systems and data warehouses, located in the SSCC SB RAS. According to the Public Relations Center of Russian Academy of Sciences, Center for collective use of performance of 16.5 teraflops, the storage system is designed for 48 terabytes. The founders of the project are six institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Novosibirsk State University. Siberian scientists will use the power of the center as part of SB RAS "Genomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics" for sequencing (sequencing) DNA and nucleic acids in a protein, as well as for storing information SPF-animal facility of the Institute of Cytology and Genetics SB RAS.
