We are testing the waters of interest for additional bio-data
formats distributed from IUBio archive
(http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu) and Bio-Mirror
(http://bio-mirror.net/). We could make available GCG formats of
a standard bio-data set including genbank-embl, swissprot-trembl
and others. We are also testing the idea of redistributing
EMBOSS indices and SRS indices, and would appreciate hearing of
any of this would be of interest to you.
IUBio hopes to be part of developing bio-grid efforts,
with help from partners with more advanced information grid
work. Indiana U. has a set of researchers actively involved in
information grid efforts: in computer science, including the
Globus grid project, in physics where grid efforts are essential
for their huge data set, and information technology.
IUBio also has good network connectivity with the world.
