Rapid featured in the newsletter of the Network of Research Infrastructures for European Seismology

RapidSeis: a NERIES spin-off pilot

The objective of this six-month pilot project was to provide a simplified system to perform analysis of seismic waveform data through a web browser. The specific aims were that no data or application be download to the user’s computer, for the user to create algorithms to customise the analysis and to allow sharing of algorithms within the seismological community.

Happy end user of Rapid gives praise

"Just wanted to say that the Jython plugin tag in the new Rapid version is really useful. I have just started playing with it and have managed to create a portlet that gets the batch job lists back from various hosts and also now enables you to select a job using a radio button and then delete it or view it in more detail - no hack scripts required! I can also dynamically set the batch system commands so I can handle hosts that use SGE, PBS ot LoadLeveller with no external input required.

Next Generation Embryology

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
talk

We introduce the Next Generation Embryology project: Next Generation in two ways. First, because its aim is to revolutionise the way the next generation of developmental biologists are educated. Where instead of relying on plastic models and diagrams in books, the idea is to use a digital library that is indexed using virtual 3D models of mouse and human embryos.

Next Generation Embryology

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
invited

3D developmental atlases are used in research for capture, collation and analysis of spatio-temporal data such as in situ gene-expression. The most advanced systems are based on a temporal series of 3D models. Examples are the EADHB human embryo atlas in Newcastle and the e-MouseAtlas in Edinburgh. Here we propose to use the 3D spatio-temporal frameworks in conjunction with a repository to deliver research and educational material directly in the context of the developing embryo.

Rapid Portals for Seismological Waveform Data

Speaker(s): 
Presentation Type: 
talk

We explain how new e-science technology can be used to make modern seismology analyses available via web browsers. These analyses will be run on local compute clusters. The users of the analysis packages do not have to be aware of any of the underlying e-infrastructure; they focus on the domain-specific task at hand.

Rapid with new Plugin Architecture released

Version: 
0.9.0

New plug-in architecture using the Jython scripting Language included. This allows portlets to dynamically change whilst being deployed in a portal framework.

Projects: 

Jython + Rapid = supercharged portal

Including Jython as part of Rapid opens so many possibilities. Whole user interfaces and other processes can now be dynamically inserted directly in a running portal. Portlets can be defined on the go and change behaviour according to user decisions.
