DescriptionThe goal of the Texas Internet Grid for Research and Education (TIGRE) project is to build a computational grid that integrates computing systems, storage systems and databases, visualization laboratories and displays, and even instruments and sensors across Texas. TIGRE will enhance the computational capabilities for Texas researchers in academia, government, and industry by integrating massive computing power. Areas of research in which Texas is a national and world leader and that require dramatically increasing computational capabilities will benefit in particular: bio-medicine, energy and the environment, aerospace, materials science, agriculture, and information technology.

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
