Security is a critical component of grid systems and while there are numerous software components and tools that provide some capabilities relating to security, there are few complete end-to-end security systems that work for emerging grid infrastructures "out-of the-box". Hence significant time and effort are needed for software evaluation, testing and(More)
Grid portals are emerging as convenient mechanisms for providing the scientific community with familiar and simplified interfaces to the Grid. Our experience in implementing Grid portals has led to the creation of GridPort: a unique, layered software system for building Grid Portals. This system has several unique features: the software is portable and runs(More)
Computational web portals are designed to simplify access to diverse sets of high performance computing resources, typically through an interface to computational Grid tools. An important shortcoming of these portals is their lack of interoperable and reusable services. This paper presents an overview of research efforts undertaken by our group to build(More)
We present MINEMO (Minimal Information for Neural ElectroMagnetic Ontologies), a checklist for the description of event-related potentials (ERP) studies. MINEMO extends MINI (Minimal Information for Neuroscience Investigations)to the ERP domain. Checklist terms are explicated in NEMO, a formal ontology that is designed to support ERP data sharing and(More)
The Computational Grid is the term applied to the infrastructure being constructed to coordinate the use of widely distributed computational resources for high end problem solving. Complex services are deployed to add functionality like authentication, remote access to resources, resource management, and directory services to the Grid. The development of(More)
Approximately 5% to 10% of melanoma may be hereditary in nature, and about 2% of melanoma can be specifically attributed to pathogenic germline mutations in cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2A (CDKN2A). To appropriately identify the small proportion of patients who benefit most from referral to a genetics specialist for consideration of genetic testing for(More)
The implementation of multiple Grid computing portals has led us to develop a methodology for Grid portal development that facilitates rapid prototyping and building of portals. Based on the NPACI Grid Portal Toolkit (GridPort) and the NPACI HotPage, all portals inherit interactive Grid services, share a single account and login environment, and share the(More)
Cyberinfrastructure makes the development and deployment of bioinformatics applications easier by providing the framework and components that may be loosely coupled using service oriented architecture. Here we describe an end to end prototype environment that allows existing applications to run on the grid, taking advantage of open source software that(More)
Grid portals and services are emerging as convenient mechanisms for providing the scientific community with familiar and simplified interfaces to the Grid. Our experiences in implementing computational grid portals, and the services needed to support them, has led to the creation of GridPort: a unique, integrated, layered software system for building(More)
