Hunting for gravitational waves: a national and global collaboration

Australian scientists on the hunt for gravitational waves rely on AARNet for transferring data from LIGO detectors in the USA to OzGrav nodes in Australia for analysis. Dozens of researchers from the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Gravitational… Continue Reading →

Webinar video available – AARC extensions to the REFEDS Assurance Framework

A recording of the webinar on AARC extensions to the REFEDS Assurance Framework (RAF) that took place on 27 June is now online. The video, aimed at Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructure (AAI) architects and technical decision makers for research collaborations,… Continue Reading →

Why TROLLing is the thing to do for linguists

The concepts of Open Science and Open Data are important to research as a whole. Not least for linguists. They live in exciting times: suddenly they have access to enormous amounts of data – or Corpora as they call it… Continue Reading →

Unravelling the mysteries of our immune system #GenomicStories

Five to six years ago, researchers were able to sequence hundreds of immune-system molecules (like antibodies) in the human body. Today they can sequence tens of millions. How? To facilitate this study of immunogenetics, researchers at Simon Fraser University in… Continue Reading →

Rehabilitation for children right at home

A new way to treat hemiplegia Tele-UPCAT is a platform dedicated to intensive home rehabilitation for the upper limbs in children suffering from hemiplegia. This serious movement disorder affects one half of the body and is caused by congenital brain… Continue Reading →

Genomics revolution in Africa! #GenomicStories

African scientists have begun to study genomic influences on disease across their continent, from differences in the progression of HIV in children, to developing new sequencing methods for the Ebola virus. The Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) Initiative… Continue Reading →

Start With AARC: the legacy begins

Research collaborations building an Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructure (AAI) don’t need to re-invent the wheel. The AARC Blueprint Architecture, Policy Development Kit and ‘AARC in Action’ collection of case studies give a head start – see the videos. #StartWithAARC! In… Continue Reading →

The final AARC Blueprint Architecture – a ‘community first’ approach

Software architects and technical decision makers looking for an authentication and authorisation infrastructure (AAI) solution for their research collaboration can #StartWithAARC. The final AARC Blueprint Architecture (BPA) uses a ‘community first’ approach and gives a head start in building a… Continue Reading →
