Mission Statement

The Illinois Bio-Grid is a consortium of academic institutions, national labs, and private and public sector organizations. These various organizations have joined together to share hardware and software tools that each can use in their research centering mainly on Bio-Medical Informatics. This will give each participant access to computational resources that is greater than the sum of the parts.

The main purpose of the Illinois Bio-Grid is to share compute and software resources amongst the members. It is a computational grid for Grid and BioMedicalInformatics software research and for production BioMedicalInformatics research.

Description

The Illinois Bio-Grid is composed of over 500 processors shared by the institutions listed below. The institutions share their resources, giving each institution a larger pool of resources to use when required. The heterogenous machines are connected via the internet to create one large virtual supercomputer in a virtual organization. The underlying technology is Globus (http://www.globus.org) and Cactus (http://www.cactuscode.org). The lead institution is DePaul University and the lead PI is Dave Angulo.
