AbstractBiomedical research efforts require integrated access and management of increasingly diverse collections of information sources, analysis methods, and applications. Research efforts also frequently need to discover, characterize, and access new sources of information. As a step toward supporting the above integration, access, and discovery goals, the caGrid infrastructure has been developed. It is the core Grid architecture of the NCI-sponsored cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG[tm]) program. The current release, caGrid version 1.0 (caGrid 1.0), is developed as the production Grid software infrastructure of caBIG[tm]. This paper presents an overview of caGrid 1.0 and its main components.
