• Globus Participates in Three-Year Program to Modernize the Earth Systems Grid Federation

    February 12, 2024   |  Lee Liming

    Globus is involved in a three-year program to upgrade the ESGF data nodes operated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Globus excels at large-scale data access. So the nodes are being upgraded to use lab-wide storage with Globus access rather than custom storage and data access systems purchased and operated by the climate research teams.

  • Brain Mapping and Neurobiology

    University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory

    The Kasthuri lab at the University of Chicago and Argonne is pioneering new techniques for brain mapping of the fine structure of the nervous system – 'connectomics' and 'projectomics'. They hope to help answer questions like: how do brains learn as they grow up? And how do brains differ across individuals and across species? And how can we reverse engineer brain function in our own computers and robots? Globus is used by these researchers for file transfer and sharing.

  • DLHub: Supporting Machine Learning in Materials Science

    University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory

    The Data and Learning Hub for Science (DLHub) serves as an automated facilitator and interconnection point for ML models and associated data transformation and analysis tools. It allows researchers to describe and publish such tools in ways that support discovery and reuse; run published tools over the network (with tools executed on a scalable hosted infrastructure); and link models, other tools, and data sources into complete ML/AI pipelines that can themselves be published, discovered, and run. DLHub relies on Globus services for data management.
