Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid
The cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid®, or caBIG®, is a voluntary, virtual, informatics infrastructure; it connects data, research tools, scientists, and organizations to leverage their combined strengths and expertise in an open, federated environment.
caGrid is the underlying service-oriented infrastructure that supports caBIG®. Driven primarily by scientific use cases from the cancer research community, it provides the core infrastructure necessary to compose the Grid of caBIG®.
caGrid provides the technology that enables collaborating institutions to share information and analytical resources efficiently and securely, while also allowing investigators to easily contribute to and leverage the resources of a national-scale, multi-institutional environment.
