Abstract

The e-NMR infrastructure project set out two years ago as an
international effort to streamline and automate structure
determination from NMR data using GRID resources. Now it has already
grown to be the second largest virtual organization within the Life
Sciences with 111 registered users, and counting. Currently, the
project hosts eight web-portals, with several others under
development. Part of the success of the eNMR project lies in a clear
strategy for the development of GRID-enabled applications, and the
presentation of these to the end users as protocolized services, with
easy-to-use web interfaces. This strategy has brought the project in
good shape to meet the challenges that lie ahead: Connecting the
separate components to complete workflows for automated analysis from
signals to structures and dynamics, and proving its value in CASD-NMR,
the critical assessment of automated structure determination by NMR.
