perfSONAR is an infrastructure and a set of services for network performance monitoring, facilitating the ability to make and exchange performance measurements in order to solve end-to-end performance problems on paths crossing several networks, and enable network-aware applications. There are over 700 publicly registered perfSONAR toolkit deployments worldwide, and the adoption is continuing to grow rapidly within data-intensive application communities.

As data shifts between research, sequencing labs, and the clinic, there is an ever-increasing volume of information generated for curing or treating diseases and cancers. Bioinformatics technologies, tools, and techniques play a critical role in not only storing this mountain of information, but turning it into meaningful biological applications and knowledge. Many life science organizations and research labs use internal and external informatics resources to store sequencing data.
Easy, fast and reliable transfer and sharing of research data on and off campus with Globus is the focus of a February workshop for Purdue students, post-doctoral researchers, faculty and staff who want to learn about, and learn how to use, the Globus system.
