Web-based collaboration links labs to supercomputers

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Researchers collaborating by means of the Internet is nothing new. However, an evolving Web-based environment created at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is redefining long-range collaboration and linking far-away labs to supercomputers -- for free.

Currently more than 500 researchers are involved in more than 100 projects using the Biological Collaborative Research Environment for Structural Biology, or BioCoRE.

Created initially with biomedical research in mind, BioCoRE is being made available to scientists in any research and training area. It was developed by the Theoretical Biophysics Group at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology.

"This is a visionary program," said Klaus Schulten, holder of the Swanlund Chair in Physics and the Theoretical Biophysics Group director. "BioCoRE is a virtual science laboratory and classroom. We have developed an America Online for biomedical researchers and trainees, and now it can serve scientists in many other fields. It lets researchers do experiments and teach as if they are all in a single room, but they can be anywhere."

BioCoRE is under continuing development with funding from the National Institutes of Health. Lead researchers are Schulten; Gila Budescu, a social scientist; and computer scientist Laxmikant V. Kale.

"When we started, we designed BioCoRE to emulate our facility at the Beckman Institute, where individuals from different fields work together; they have their own offices and access to public places and use the resources for cross-disciplinary collaboration," said Budescu, who oversees the development area. "The BioCoRE virtual environment, with its shared project spaces, bridges disciplinary, temporal and geographical boundaries and offers an optimal and powerful extension to a normal physical office and classroom."

BiCoRE members can readily access -- regardless of their computer operating systems -- co
