3Dmouse Grid

3Dmouse Grid

Recently, Dr James Sharpe has invented a revolutionary imaging technique at the MRC Human Genetics Unit which can capture full 3D data at micron resolution using low-cost imaging equipment available in most biological laboratories. The technique is known as optical projection tomography (OPT) and it produces 3D microscopic images from translucent stained samples of unprecedented fidelity and resolution. Grid technologies have the power to add enormous value to the OPT technique. We propose to show this by: · Demonstrating the fast, convenient, secure transfer of data and results to and from Grid resources. · Providing computational resource via the Grid using Globus and demonstrating a major reduction in processing time from more than 5 hours to less than 15 minutes. · Enabling real-time visualisation of the results in the scientist’s laboratory.
