Cloud Computing for e-Science With CARMEN
Source: Newcastle University
The CARMEN e-science project (www.carmen.org.uk) is designing a system to allow neuroscientists to share, integrate and analyse data. Globally, over 100,000 neuroscientists are working on the problem of understanding how the brain works. This is a major challenge that could revolutionise biology, medicine and computer science. Solving it requires investigating how the brain encodes, transmits and processes information. This paper describes the CARMEN system. This is a generic e-science platform "In the cloud" which enables data sharing, integration and analysis supported by metadata. An expandable range of services are provided to extract added value from the data.
