Abstract: Heart disease and cancer are the two biggest diseases, and obviously the focus of intense work within the biomedical community. One aspect of this work is the computer simulation of whole organs based on molecular and cellular level models, and this requires the application of large scale computational and data management resources. The Integrative Biology project is a second generation e-Science project, funded by EPSRC, which will build on the output of first round projects and integrate these and other new developments into a customized Grid framework for running large scale, whole organ HPC simulations, managing a growing database of simulation results and supporting collaborative analysis and visualization. This paper describes the outline architecture and the set demonstrators being developed in the initial phase of the project.
