Summary on Grant Application Form
The myGrid consortium has (a) successfully pioneered world-class research on the Semantic and Data Grid, and (b) developed open source high-level service-based middleware to support in silico experiments in biology that are in use by biologists and being adopted by a wide range of national projects and international partners. We have an active and vibrant end user community; have developed core infrastructure for routine use; established national partnerships; forged extensive links with the international life science community and the e-Science/Grid community; and created a substantial footprint in the community.The platform grant gives us the essential support to ensure that the myGrid platform remains cohesive and coherent, and gives us the essential flexibility to connect to other projects, leverage developments across the consortium, investigate technical problems, react to opportunities and continue our programme of dissemination to our user (Life Science) and technical (e-Science/Grid) communities and partners. The platform will fund user support and technical investigations into specific extensions for clients and platforms, joint development of functionality with partners (in particular EGEE), coordination with external developments (in particular BioMOBY) and improving and enhancing myGrid components, including undertaking and mainstreaming research experiments, in particular visualisation of results and metadata.
