BioCoRE: A Biological Collaborative Research Environment
BioCoRE is a freely available web-based collaborative environment
designed to enhance the biomedical research process and promote
training. By using a standard web-browser (on a handheld PDA or
desktop or laptop computer) scientists create projects and invite
collaborators to join. All project data is secure and can be shared
only by the specific project team. Researchers use BioCoRE to submit
jobs to supercomputers or other remote sites, view molecules together
across distances and easily create input files for supercomputer runs.
BioCoRE features a synchronous and asynchronous chat, a project-wide
"bookmarks" file that enables the sharing of weblinks as well as a
web-based filesystem that is accessible to the BioCoRE project
members. This filesystem is used to share files of interest and to
simplify publication preparations via a seamless transport of document
files among project members.
Summary pages within BioCoRE regularly inform the project team of the
project status, including individual tasks of each team member. BioCoRE
sessions are automatically recorded and can be reviewed later by the
project leader and the other team members.
