A worldwide e-Infrastructure for NMR and structural biology


Announcing the CASD-NMR 2013 evaluation meeting

Dear All,

This saturday, representatives of the labs that particpated in the last round of CASD-NMR will meet in Piscataway, NY, to discuss the outcome of their efforts. We have ~120 submissions over 10 targets, so it promises to be a day full with data, procedures and of course structures. 

We are trying to address a number of questions:


- What changes, modifications, improvements were implemented during this round in the protocols; what were the reasons for this?

Running smoothly for the time being. Just got back from the coffee corner for more HADDOCKing!

New portals released by CERM


I am a little late but wanted nevertheless blog here that at CERM we released two new portals:

WeNMR@J Grid Comp

Check out the published article describing the WeNMR gateway in J. Grid. Comp.


It's open access!

Are we doing enough for our outreach activities?

WeNMR@ the Gisela CHAIN conference in Mexico City

View the live stream of "Making e-Infrastructures Sustainable" Conference The Joint GISELA-CHAIN Conference will be held in Mexico City, Mexico from June 27th to 29th 2012. It is hosted by the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de México (UNAM) and supported by RedCLARA and CUDI. Its aim is to be both an Open Conference and a User-Forum and its Scientific Programme is conceived to reach two main objectives:

Cite WeNMR/WestLife

Usage of the WeNMR/WestLife portals should be acknowledged in any publication:
"The FP7 WeNMR (project# 261572) and H2020 West-Life (project# 675858) European e-Infrastructure projects are acknowledged for the use of their web portals, which make use of the EGI infrastructure and DIRAC4EGI service with the dedicated support of CESNET-MetaCloud, INFN-PADOVA, NCG-INGRID-PT, RAL-LCG2, TW-NCHC, SURFsara and NIKHEF, and the additional support of the national GRID Initiatives of Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, UK, South Africa, Malaysia, Taiwan and the US Open Science Grid."
