Telescience recognized for facilitating biomedical research on a global network

The United States has not placed a high voltage electron microscope in service for biomedical research since the 1970s, yet access to these microscopes is vital for the study of disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease as well as mental retardation. To offset this obstacle, and improve speed and accessibility to microscopic data, the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research (NCMIR), in collaboration with the National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure (NPACI), developed Telescience (https://telescience.ucsd.edu), a process that provides, through one Web interface, a suite of tools for end-to-end electron tomography including remote microscopy, bioinformatics, distributed computing, and collaborative visualization. Telescience allows researchers to access rare, high energy electron microscopes.

Recently, a team of Telescience researchers competed in the annual Bandwidth Challenge at Supercomputing 2003, a showcase contest designed to highlight emerging applications that use significant bandwidth. The team was recognized with the "Best Application" award for their advanced, real-world use of computer networks and infrastructure to facilitate international biomedical research.

The team, representing NCMIR, NPACI, the Biomedical Informatics Research Network (BIRN), OptIPuter, and Pacific Rim Applications and Grid Middleware Assembly (PRAGMA) programs, assembled a view into their production cyberinfrastructure that showcased an international consortium of users and a globally-distributed pool of integrated, heterogeneous resources. They demonstrated specific elements of the overall Telescience infrastructure, including the ability to query distributed, federated databases, and transparently initiate secure data transfers over native IPv6 networks using Grid middleware such as IPv6 enabled GridFTP. The ability to remotely control and acquire data from remo
