  • Genomic Researchers Rely on Globus for Large Data Transfers

    University of Michigan

    The Biomedical Research Core Facility, like all facilities dealing with human genome sequencing, are experiencing explosive data growth. Fact: every two days they are delivering more data than they did in their first 20 years of existence. The Advanced Genomics core team employs both “push and pull” methods to handle data transfers with Globus.

  • Accelerating Research at UCSD with Globus


    Researchers are now able to reliably transfer and share large data sets, and even share protected data with ease. With the increase in Globus managed endpoints, researchers at UC San Diego can easily transfer and share data both internally and with researchers outside UC San Diego.

  • ATLAS Experiment with Cori and Theta

    National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF)

    The ATLAS experiment is a general purpose particle detector based at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator. ATLAS scientists use Globus to transfer data between Theta, the ALCF's Intel-Cray system which serves as a bridge to exascale, and NERSC's Cori supercomputer.

  • 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.
