XSEDE just announced that Globus Connect Server (formerly called Globus Connect Multiuser) is now accepted for use in Campus Bridging. Campus Bridging efforts in XSEDE aim to lower the barriers for researchers that wish to utilize XSEDE resources and to define best practices for campus IT staff connecting to national cyberinfrastructure.

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.

We had the pleasure of meeting this month’s honored users in person at the XSEDE13 Conference in San Diego last month. Brian Leu, Parth Sheth, and Albert Liu are all undergraduates at the University of Michigan. Brian answered my questions about how they use Globus Online to manage their undergraduate research data. We couldn't be happier that Globus Online has helped them continue their research over the summer--and that they've never known the difficulties of moving research data in the pre-Globus era!

Researchers who move data over the Internet with tools such as FTP on the TCP communication protocol to detect and retransmit data packets that have become corrupted in transit. It turns out that in doing so, they are leaning on an extremely weak reed. A 16-bit checksum means that 1 in 65,536 bad packets will be erroneously accepted as correct. You might think that corrupted packets are rare.
