PlantingScience Community Doubles in Size After Consultation With SGCI

PlantingScience worked with SGCI user experience consultants to design new interfaces that would give their users more control. As a result, the users, who are teachers, are not only happier with the experience of using the website, but it has also meant that the PlantingScience staff spends less time helping them. Thanks to these changes, the PlantingScience team doubled the number of teachers and student teams in the program and can look forward to supporting even more growth in the future.

SGCI Client Chem Compute Meets Goals

The Chem Compute science gateway had humble beginnings as a small classroom operation but, after engaging with SGCI, it can now serve many more undergraduate students simultaneously. The work that was completed dramatically reduced queue times (from minutes to seconds), which was important for the gateway's undergraduate audience.

Gateways 2017 Conference

The Gateways 2017 conference took place in October on the campus of the University of Michigan. The conference was attended by 102 people, and participants joined from 20 states and 3 countries, traveling to Ann Arbor from as far away as Australia. The first day of the conference was dedicated entirely to tutorials, while the second and third days offered a packed conference program.

Report from October 2017 Science Gateways Bootcamp

The second Science Gateways Bootcamp of 2017 took place in October in Indianapolis, IN. Eight teams participated in this intensive, week-long workshop to gain the skills needed for developing, operating, and sustaining gateways. As was the case with attendees of the inaugural Bootcamp in April 2017, participants balanced intensive learning and hands-on work with fun evening gatherings and opportunities for networking with their cohort and instructors.

SGCI Client Cosmic^2 and Its Use of Globus

This success story highlights the work that SGCI consultants completed on the COSMIC^2 science gateway, which offers an easy, web-based platform for structural biologists to determine macromolecular structures using cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM). Our EDS consultants integrated a federated identity management service called Globus Auth as well as Globus Transfer, which makes terabyte-sized data transfers possible.

Inspiration for Building On-Campus Teams at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid

SGCI's Sandra Gesing reports on her May 2017 visit to Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, where she gave a seminar on the sustainability of science gateways with an emphasis on the cost-saving potential of forming on-campus groups. In her seminar, she explained how overcoming the challenge of forming such groups can provide long-term rewards that can serve gateway project's needs more effectively, efficiently, and reliably.
