The iPlant platform
I am not sure how useful this can or will be
I find it a bit hard to understand the 'jargonny' language
Grand Challenge Teams — cross-disciplinary, community-driven research groups — work collaboratively with iPlant to develop a cyberinfrastructure foundation that supports the computational needs of the research community and facilitates progress toward solving major problems in plant science.
The cyberinfrastructure supports a diverse group of plant science researchers and brings together experts from various fields of biology, as well as computer science.
