The JISC-funded IBVRE project is developing a large-scale Virtual Research Environment demonstrator to investigate the use of existing collaboration frameworks to support the entire research process of a large-scale, international research consortium, namely that of the Integrative Biology (IB) project. IB is a second-round EPSRC e-Science Pilot project developing a Grid infrastructure to support post-genomic research in Integrative Biology. Integrative approaches to biology are rapidly evolving and characterised by the attempt to understand biological systems through the construction of large-scale software systems that simulate biological behaviour at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. These in silico experiments, as they are known, increasingly demand larger and more powerful resources, both in terms of data storage and computation; the primary aim of the IB project is to meet these needs by constructing a Grid infrastructure to provide tailored, seamless access to these vital facilities. The overall aim of the IBVRE project is to extend the IB infrastructure to become a VRE for computational biology. This single, integrated environment will support the entire research process in its widest sense, including identification of research area, building and managing projects and consortia, disseminating results, experimental and simulated data generation acquisition, analysis and curation, access to IT, HPC and experimental resources, administration, and provision of training to new researchers entering the field (learning and teaching support tools). Project start date: 2005-04-01. Project end date: 2007-03-31. (Excerpt from this source)
