iPlant - iPlant Collaborative


Program Description: iPlant The iPlant Collaborative is a community of researchers, educators, and students working to enrich all plant sciences through the development of cyberinfrastructure ‐ the physical computing resources, collaborative environment, virtual machine resources, and interoperable analysis software and data services– that are essential components of modern biology. iPlant was established by the U.S. National Science Foundation in 2008 to develop cyberinfrastructure for life sciences research and democratize access to U.S. supercomputing capabilities. iPlant develops the national cyberinfrastructure for data-intensive biology driven by high-throughput sequencing, phenotypic and environmental datasets. iPlant also provides powerful extensible platforms for data storage, bioinformatics, image analyses, cloud services, APIs, and more.

Organization Description: iPlant has 19,000 users. iPlant is a virtual organization lead by The University of Arizona, Texas Advanced Computing Center, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, and University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
