Reaxys is a powerful web-based tool designed to retrieve chemistry data and citations from patents, journals, and books. The interface is accessible and user-friendly, allowing researchers to easily query and filter chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and pharmacology data. 

Reaxsys is currently available to all ASU researchers and students. For a general how-to guide and to access Rexays visit For general information about the Reaxsys tool, visit

First Annual Research Computing Expo

  • ASU Research Computing
  • 2021-08-13

ASU Research Computing maintains an institutionally-supported advanced computing system that enables ASU researchers to pursue large-scale discovery. The increased speed and scale of these resources have made this processing power more accessible and easy to use.

In early August 2021, Research Computing held our first annual Expo, a week-long virtual event open to all students, staff, and faculty across all disciplines. The Expo included an in-depth learning experience in advanced computing literacy for the ASU research community. The Expo was well-received by the ASU community, boasting almost 200 unique attendees over the whole week. A full schedule of the Expo workshops and recordings can be found here.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions on what you would like to see next year ( and invite you to join us at the 2022 Research Computing Expo!

Got Data? Research Computing Offers Affordable Project Storage

  • ASU Research Computing
  • 2021-02-16

Did you know that Research Computing offers an affordable home for large research data? Did you also know it is about to get a lot bigger?

Working with partners at Dell, Research Computing is deploying a large-scale research data storage system, offering 4 Petabytes of capacity. That's 4,000 Terabytes - more than twice what was available on the previous system! This project storage will be available as a "network drive" on individual PCs as well as on the Agave supercomputing cluster and the cost will remain $50/TB/year. The new storage is expected to go live later this semester.
