The MGCF is fully accessible via remote access. Please email us
if you need help! Most technical issues are best handled via email but if you want to talk about theory or
planning, suggest some times and we'll set up a Zoom meeting.
Phase 4 access is now allowed in 175 Tan Hall! If you have been struggling with
Maestro or Comsol on a tiny screen, access to good workstations is now available. Please
review our Phase 4 on-site access plan.
Please acknowledge NIH S10OD023532 in publications resulting from use of the MGCF and
email us the reference.
The MGCF (Molecular Graphics and Computation Facility) is in 175 Tan Hall and is a high-performance computing resource specializing in chemistry and related disciplines.
We serve over 50 research groups in the College of Chemistry and the wider UC Berkeley campus community. We also serve research groups
at other universities including MIT, U of Oregon, U of Texas, and other UC's.
The MGCF was founded in 1990 with NIH funding
and has since been supported through NIH, NSF and generous corporate sponsorship.
We have 2 full-time scientists providing technical consulting on project feasibility, equipment and software use.
