Long NameStructural Biology Grid
VO TypeOSG User and Resource Provider (Provides services to the OSG and has/will have users who do OSG-dependent scientific research)
Certificate Issue Only This VO is only used to issue user certificates to OSG community.False
DescriptionThis VO represents members of the SBGrid consortium of structural biology labs located across the US and around the world. There are 150 members of the consortium, mostly based in the US, with a significant number (about 25) in the Boston area.
CommunityStructural biology focuses primarily on the study of molecular structure of proteins and nucleic acids and the association of structure and function. The community has significant data and processing requirements originating from large data sets resulting from various forms of macromolecular imaging techniques (X-ray cyrstallography, electron-microscopy, and NMR), as well as simulation and modeling algorithms for protein folding, docking, structure determination, and dynamics.
Parent VO Sometimes a project grows large enough to include several offshoot projects in it. When this happens, such a VO would want to be its own registration but would want to cite the parent project on its registration. This item helps a VO manager make such a mapping. N/A
