The SGCI serves the science gateway community.

We provide NSF-funded, online and in-person resources and services. Our goal is to facilitate—at little or no cost—the sharing of experiences, technologies, and practices of those working with science gateways. Read success stories about how we've supported gateway development and our community of gateway creators, users, and students.
Join the Gateways Community Forum! We've created a discussion forum open to all members of the gateway community. We welcome questions, event listings, and other community-relevant topics.

What is a Gateway? What is a Gateway?

Science gateways allow science & engineering communities to access shared data, software, computing services, instruments, educational materials, and other resources specific to their disciplines. Read more on Wikipedia.

SGCI Webinar Series

SGCI hosts a free webinar series on the second Wednesday of each month at 1 pm Eastern/10 am Pacific time. 

Galaxy: Powering Science from the Desktop to Global Cyberinfrastructure

In addition to being open source software, Galaxy is a cloud service available for free to researchers worldwide at As a community-focused and -driven software project, Galaxy is also run by academic, research, and commercial institutions for public and private purposes, on premises and in the cloud. This talk highlights some of the technologies and development projects that have made this diversity of deployments possible.

Video and slides from previous webinars are available in our webinar archive.

SGCI Tech Blogs

Tech Blogs are written by SGCI experts and offer a variety of resources for gateway builders and developers. It's likely that, from reading the posts, you'll have what you need to incorporate the technologies discussed on your own, but we're here to help if you ever need it.

Guest Blog: The Distant Reader—A Jetstream-Powered Assist for an Age-Old Process

The Distant Reader gateway (an SGCI client) supplements the traditional reading process by allowing the user to make sense of a large body of text when there's just too much to process in one mind. This is useful to researchers and students in various scholarly roles, from scientists doing a literature review to undergraduates who want a "big picture" understanding of an entire semester's readings. The gateway uses a dynamic virtual cluster deployed on the Jetstream cloud. Jetstream is an SGCI Partner.
