Title: Grid portals for bioinformatics
Author: Ramakrishnan, Lavanya; Reed, Mark S.C.; Tilson, Jeffrey; Reed, Daniel
Abstract: The explosive growth of biological and biomedical research requires a new set of software tools and a computational environment that includes high performance computing and largescale data management. These software environments need to be easy-to-use and scalable to support the diverse requirements of educators and researchers. This paper describes the design philosophy and architecture of a bioinformatics portal that operates atop standard Grid infrastructure and tools such as the Open Grid Computing Environment (OGCE) and Globus toolkit. The Bioportal integrates domain-specific tools and standard community tools to provide an integrated, collaborative environment. We also discuss the experiences with deploying the portal for educational and research users in North Carolina and as part of the NSF TeraGrid.

  • International Workshop on Grid Computing Environments--Open Access (2006)
    The purpose of this Workshop is to bring together the community to discuss and foster the exchange of ideas for the development of tools, methodologies and frameworks to build Grid computing environments. Last year’s conference at SC05 focussed on tools for Grid Portals. This years conference will broaden the discussion to also include efforts of other tools that make the development and use of Grids more easily accessible from the desktop.
