CoSMIC is an international collaborative research program focused on data driven discovery in materials science using a genomics discovery paradigm for materials design. Its central research theme is to develop new computational and experimental ways of accelerated mechanistic based discovery and design of materials using informatics methods. The program is directed by Professor Krishna Rajan of Iowa State University and involves a network of laboratories in over ten countries.
