The new release (version 3.4.0) includes new and award-winning software components and also benefits from improved security and can be accessed and downloaded at www.omii.ac.uk.
The modular design of the new release makes it possible to pick and choose which software components are installed. In fact, it comprises 15 software components, providing the user with an immense number of possible configurations.
Two new software components have been integrated with the new release: GridSphere allows users to develop their own portlets and Open Grid Manager is used to monitor and manage a user’s grid resources.
According to Neil Chue Hong, Director of OMII-UK, the Institute is now moving closer to its goal of enabling scientists to produce their own Grid-enabled applications.
‘We are trying to move away from regular releases and towards being more solution-focused so that we can produce packages that are of real value to scientists,’ he said.
Founded in 2006, OMII-UK is funded by EPSRC through the UK e-Science Core programme, and is a collaboration between the Universities of Southampton, Edinburgh and Manchester.

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...
For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
