Informatics is the science of information, information processing, and the study of structures, algorithms, behavior, and interactions of natural and artificial systems that store, process, access and communicate information. The science of informatics thus overlaps a wide range of disciplines, including cheminformatics, bioinformatics and materials informatics.

In addition to Magus, SNU's 64-node (1008 cores) IBM HPC cluster, computational facilities at the Informatics Center include several stand-alone Linux computers that are used for teaching and research purposes, and as license servers.

Software include Gaussian'09, GaussView, VASP, Orca, Schrodinger Suite, MOE, Forge, Flare, AIMAll, Multiwfn, Mathematica, SciFinder and Cambridge crystallographic databases.
