Project Details

Project Description

Since the first microscope, the development and sophistication of imaging technologies have set the pace in life-sciences. The ability to distinguish smaller and smaller structures continues to define the foundation for biological and bio-medical research. Over the next 5 to 10 years we expect the resolution of microscopes will challenge the computational and storage capacity of current stand alone instruments. This project will develop a software architecture that integrates image capturing hardware and data analysis and storage software into a Grid of high performance computers and storage devices. The resulting system will provide a powerful scalable solution for future developments.'
