What is COSMIC²?

Cryo-EM Open Source Multiplatform Infrastructure for Cloud Computing

COSMIC² a freely available web platform for submitting cryo-EM jobs through the cloud to Comet, a cluster at the San Diego Supercomputer Center.  COSMIC² will serve as a Science Gateway to provide users with freely available computing time to analyze cryo-EM data.

Mission statement

To provide scientists with the necessary computing power to determine cryo-EM structures without using a commandline, with a particular emphasis on helping new cryo-EM users determine 3D structures.

The goal of COSMIC² is remove all computing bottlenecks and headaches from cryo-EM data analysis. As such, we are providing users with freely available computing time to run cryo-EM analysis routines at the San Diego Supercomputer Center.
