It may be surprising that with a PhD in biochemistry, Brigitte Raumann spends a lot of time these days considering data storage and transport in high energy physics and astronomy. But that also puts her in the perfect position to recognize some of the lessons from those disciplines that the life sciences can pick up.

Bio-IT World sat down with Raumann to talk about the challenges she sees in data management in the life sciences and the solutions available.

NIH staff and extramural researchers with an electronic Research Administration (eRA) Commons account can now use those credentials with Globus to access resources and services. This integration is the result of a partnership between the NIH Center for Information Technology and Globus, a division of the University of Chicago that provides data management capabilities—including managed data transfer and sharing—to research organizations.

A conversation with Argonne's Katrin Heitmann

Globus recently saw the biggest single file transfer in our history: a team led by Argonne National Laboratory scientists moved 2.9 petabytes of data on the Summit system at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, as part of a research project involving three of the largest cosmological simulations known to date

We sat down with Dr. Katrin Heitmann, Argonne physicist and computational scientist and the lead researcher on this project, to get details on the project and why she uses Globus.
