The Australian BioGrid Portal: Empowering the Molecular Docking Research Community

Gibbins, Hussein, Nadimiti, Krishna, Beeson, Brett, Chhabra, Rajesh, Smith, Brian, & Buyya, Rajkumar (2005) The Australian BioGrid Portal: Empowering the Molecular Docking Research Community. In APAC'05 "Empowering Research Communities" - The APAC Conference and Exhibition on Advanced Computing, Grid Applications and eResearch, 26-30 September 2005, Royal Pines Resort, Gold Coast, QLD.


This paper presents the Australian BioGrid Portal that aims to provide the biotechnology sector in Australia with ready access to technologies that enable them to perform drug-lead exploration in an efficient and inexpensive manner on national and international computing Grids. Access will be provided to docking applications and a wide variety of chemical databases. In addition, analysis of the screening results will be made possible using web-based tools, along with archival of these results. The portal aims to become a complete molecular docking e-Research platform, from user management, through to experiment composition, execution over grid resources, and results visualization. One of the most sought after functionalities in the Grid Portals today is ‘Persistence’ and this paper presents a solution which not only offers persistence but also provides portability across the other JSR168 compliant portal containers. This portal also offers a mechanism for users to easily manage multiple projects.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
