e-BioGrid momentum 2012 17 December

e-Infrastructure for Life Sciences: State of affairs.

Time: 13h - 17h
Language: English.
Participation: free. Please send an email to e-BioGrid if you would like to participate.
Location: Science Park Amsterdam Details follow

The e-BioGrid project is part of the BiG Grid project to establish an e-infrastructure for life sciences. Life sciences today deals with data-intensive and high-throughput experimentation that requires an e-infrastructure in terms of computing, storage, data transfers and sharing. Since 2010 the e-BioGrid project established this e-infrastructure by providing the support and developing portals or ported life science applications giving life scientists and bioinformaticians access to the e-infrastructure of BiG Grid.

We will present the results of the e-BioGrid project of the past 2.5 years. The project will finish December 31th, but, as part of the e-BioGrid success, the life science specific support and development of the e-infrastructure will be continued within SURFsara and its e-infrastructure partners.
