e-Science and "The Grid" for Bio/Health Informaticians
University of Manchester
The Northwest Institute for Bio-Health Informatics and the training teams from the UK's National Grid Service and the EU-funded OMII-Europe project invite you to participate in their introductory course about e-Science technologies for bio and health informaticians in the UK. This ‘hands-on’ course is aimed at those who are interested in exploring the potential of grid computing to enhance their life sciences or health research.
With an emphasis on application to the Bio/Health domain, this course has been designed to:
The course focuses on technologies and infrastructures that are in production use at different scales (project, national, international), and then explores progress towards what has sometimes been called “The Grid.”
