Research at the UK National e-Science Centre

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
invited

The National e-Science Centre coordinates the e-Science effort for the UK. It has a number of activities, one of which is research. This research is interdisciplinary, where Informatics is applied in the context of solving large and complex scientific problems. Such problem solving requires much computational effort and often involves large amounts of data. In this talk I will show the two major components of our research by providing examples of our research projects: 1. To apply Informatics to solve scientific computational problems and 2.

National e-Science and Local e-Research

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
invited

The UK e-Science programme started in 2000 and has to date funded over 100 projects together worth more than £250 million. A major component of its success is its Core Programme that served as the basis for the UK’s e-Science activities. I will show the evolution of this programme and highlight a number of its generic activities, which may serve as entry points to scientists wishing to engage the e-Science community and make use of its services. e-Research is all about the invention of computer-enabled methods and their application to research.

Advanced Data Mining and Integration Research for Europe (ADMIRE)

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
talk

Introduction to the Edinburgh National e-Science Centre's Research Group in the context of Data Mining. It specifically mentions an EU-FP7 project ADMIRE, which aims to to deliver a consistent and easy-to-use technology for extracting information and knowledge. The project is motivated by the difficulty of extracting meaningful information by data mining combinations of data from multiple heterogeneous and distributed resources.

Rapid

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
talk

Introduces Rapid, its goals and provides the following information:
* current status of the project
* plans for next three months
* what the software does and who it's targeted at
* how the software integrates with other tools and the software used by target communities of users
* other requirements (e.g. other software that could benefit the project)

Enabling User Tasks Instead of Focussing on Submitting Computer Jobs

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
talk

We introduce an approach that allows rapid development and deployment of such portal systems, and which uses a philosophy quite different from any other portal system that exist today. Whereas most Grid Computing and HPC portals are graphical representations for the underlying technical components, our system delivers portals that allow specialists to perform tasks in the context of their own domain.

Microarrays in Minutes: Streamlining Gene Expression Data Analyses

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
talk

The main aim of this project is to provide biologists with a compact, efficient, and uncomplicated software platform for the robust analysis, intuitive representation, and reliable preservation of all data generated by high-throughput gene expression analysis techniques; such as quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) or microarrays.
