From its beginning, the Globus vision was to make research easier for scientists, taking on the burden of the annoying and tedious data tasks to make more time for the actual science. Gradually, the service has increased its toolbox from transfer and sharing to analysis and discovery, tapping the potential of the cloud to handle the tricky business of research data management. At Globusworld 2017, the spotlight was appropriately on “labs” -- both the internal working on new features and the external using Globus services to boost their science.

On September 1st, the National Science Foundation computational cloud resource Jetstream goes into full operation. Read about how the Computation Institute's Globus provides key services for this new system that lowers the barriers of entry for researchers using high-performance computational tools.

The University of Chicago Innovation Fund has been kind to the Computation Institute. One year ago, Parallel.works, led by CI Senior Fellow Mike Wilde, received funding from the UChicago-backed initiative to support entrepreneurship on campus. Last summer, the Array of Things project kept the streak alive, receiving $150,000 to begin manufacturing its sensor nodes. But for the fall round of the Innovation Fund, we doubled down with two winning startups from CI researchers: Navipoint Genomics and Praedictus Climate Solutions.

The traditional scientific journal format has reached new limitations as science grows more data-intensive,and open data and global collaboration become more common drivers of research. Last week, CI research center Globus announced the trial launch of Globus data publication, a new service that makes it easier for researchers to describe, curate, preserve and discover data.

The CI’s 2014-15 Inside the Discovery Cloud speaker series focused on collaboration, presenting pairs of speakers who are working together to unlock new knowledge through computation. Attendees heard about how new computational approaches are changing medicine, biology, social science, public policy, and more, and discover opportunities for new collaborations and student research projects.
