myTea: Best Practice for Integrated Experiment Annotation Support



This project builds on the two e-Science Pilot projects, myGrid and Integrative Biology. Exploiting the outputs from myGrid, best practice in handling complex in-silico biological experiments will be integrated into the infrastructure developed in Integrative Biology for large multi-scale simulations. Specifically, myGrid components and techniques dealing with the composition, workflow and data / provenance management of biological experiments will be extended firstly to support the computationally intensive services typical in Integrative biology and secondly to enable the workflow to be dynamically modified as the experiment progresses. This should enable scientists to steer the whole experimental process and to provide the necessary information management facilities to make it useful. In order to make this "best practice" available to other scientists, the resulting enhanced software components will be generalized and submitted to the OMII repository of middleware components. The project investigators are all investigators in either myGrid or Integrative Biology, and the work will be carried out at CCLRC, the IT-Innovation Centre at Southampton University and the Department of Computer Science at Manchester University.
