PlantingScience Community Doubles in Size After Consultation With SGCI

“The PlantingScience.org online mentoring program was scaling up and we needed to put more control into the hands of our teacher-users without overwhelming them. By working with the SGCI user experience consultants, we were able to design new interfaces that gave teachers the tools to set up their own students’ teams and find scientist mentors to work with. Not only are teachers happier now because they have more control of their experience and timeline, but we have reduced the number...

SGCI Client Chem Compute Meets Goals

“I was stuck using a small server provided by my University but, by working with SGCI, I was able to transition to much better hosting on Jetstream. Now our Chem Compute science gateway can serve many more undergraduate students simultaneously, and classes are already taking advantage of that this Fall.   Prior to SGCI support we were submitting jobs only using a local server and Comet and could only work on 8 jobs at once. The SGCI Extended Developer Support consultant I...

Gateways 2017 Conference

"Attending Gateways 2017 was on the top of my list for this year and the event was even better than I envisioned.  It was great to see a welcoming community of like-minded people to learn about interesting projects, share thoughts, and make plans for the future. The organization of the event was one of the best I've ever attended; every aspect of the program was planned in a thoughtful way and should be used as a template for other similar-sized events.” Enis...

SGCI Client Cosmic^2 and Its Use of Globus

"We knew that the need was there for a cryo-EM gateway, and having the experts at SGCI available made the gateway development process much more efficient since they have the starting technologies to work with and they know how to solve the unique problems facing gateway developers." The COSMIC 2 science gateway offers an easy, web-based platform for structural biologists to determine macromolecular structures using cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM). Over the last 5 years,...
