GlobusWorld 2018 coincided with an important file transfer milestone: 400 petabytes of data moved between Globus endpoints via the service since 2010. But many of the talks, tutorials, and user stories focused instead on what comes after data reaches its destination. Whether it’s enabling the discovery of promising new materials, helping coordinate multi-site research projects in neuroscience and molecular biology, or facilitating campus- and country-wide storage networks, Globus is increasingly a critical behind-the-scenes partner in some of today’s most exciting science.

The traditional scientific journal format has reached new limitations as science grows more data-intensive,and open data and global collaboration become more common drivers of research. Last week, CI research center Globus announced the trial launch of Globus data publication, a new service that makes it easier for researchers to describe, curate, preserve and discover data.

The CI’s 2014-15 Inside the Discovery Cloud speaker series focused on collaboration, presenting pairs of speakers who are working together to unlock new knowledge through computation. Attendees heard about how new computational approaches are changing medicine, biology, social science, public policy, and more, and discover opportunities for new collaborations and student research projects.
