Biological Applications of Advanced Strategic Computing (BAASiC): Enabling a revolutionary approach to improve biological understanding, human health and biosecurity by applying advanced computational technology bringing together large-scale simulation, deep analysis of complex and diverse data, and new targeted sensor and measurement technologies. BAASiC is a multi-institution initiative, led by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and including partners across academia, industry, and government.
The Laboratory works to keep the world safe from ever-changing biological and chemical threats by advancing the nation's capabilities in detection, characterization, and mitigation. The Laboratory teams with academia, industry, and other government agencies to take on the entire lifecycle of a biological threat – from awareness to prevention, preparedness to detection, and response to recovery.
