West-Life: Lessons learnt from developing a virtual research environment

The West-Life project is a Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Commission to provide data processing and data management services for structural biology, in particular to support integrative methods. It has developed important enhancements to existing web services for structure solution and analysis, new pipelines to link these services into more complex higher-level workflows, and new data management facilities. Through this work it has made the benefits of European e-Infrastructures more accessible to life-science researchers in general and structural biologists in particular. The presentation will discuss some lessons learned along the way.

CORBEL webinars include an audience Q&A session during which attendees can ask questions and make suggestions.

This webinar took place on 23 October 2018 and is part of the CORBEL webinar series. It is best viewed in full screen mode using Google Chrome. The slides from this webinar can be downloaded from SlideShare here.
