The research computers are located in the LRC, which is accessible during regular library hours and after the library closes through WildCard access to the LRC Extended Hours space.

Users who wish to use the specialized software on these computers will take precedence over users who may be using the computers for non-bioinformatics or statistical analysis. Users are encouraged to seek assistance from Galter staff if they wish to use a computer that is occupied by another user who is not using the specialized software.
