The RDSI Identity & Authorisation project is well underway and has now entered into the Elaboration and Documentation phase. This phase entails working with the Nodes to gather detailed requirements and use case information in order to develop a number of documents that will then be presented at the first steering committee. The Identity Management project is a collaborative effort between staff at the AAF, Intersect and the RDSI project.
The Stemformatics team is using QCloud, the RDSI node operated by QCIF, to make available a growing collection of high quality gene expression datasets for stem cell research, and to allow researchers to quickly and easily visualise genes that interest them in these datasets.
Where will we put the data when the genome sequencing comes back?
RDSI and QCloud are helping Professor David Lambert of Griffith University's Environmental Futures Centre to solve a real dilemma: what do you do with the 50 TB of DNA sequence data you're expecting when it comes back from the sequence lab on hard disks? Where will you put it so you can work with it?
What if historians could mine newspaper articles going back to the early days of Australian colonial history, and what if each of those articles were georeferenced – the content of each story pinpointed in time and space? With Paper Miner, the first steps are being taken so that this is what historians can do.
