Project Description

Research in many scientific fields is hampered by a lack of tools to access, share and manipulate large sets of distributed data. This proposal aims to increase scientific productivity in research by developing an eresearch system that integrates data management with workflows (experimental and processing) in a distrbuted environment. the system, to be developed in partnership with Arcitecta (an established informatics software provider) will initially target neuro imaging research data and workflows, although it will be more generally applicable to other research domains. additionally, ontology-driven semantic approaches to intelligently integrating and querying datasets will be explored.
