BioMedical Research Informatics Delivered by Grid Enabled Services Cardiovascular Functional Genomics - An integrated distributed database facility

BRIDGES

http://www.brc.dcs.gla.ac.uk/projects/bridges/

BRIDGES will incrementally develop and explore database integration over six geographically distributed research sites within the framework of a large Wellcome Trust biomedical research project. Three classes of integration will be developed to support a sophisticated bioinformatics infrastructure supporting: data sources (both public and project generated), bioinformatics analysis and visualisation tools, and research activities combining shared and private data. The inclusion of patient records and animal experiment data means that privacy and access control are particular concerns. An exploration of index factories accelerating sequence processing will test the hypothesis that the Grid makes a new class of e-Science indexes feasible. Both OGSA-DAI and IBM DiscoveryLink technology will be employed and a report will identify how each performed in this context.
