A service and infrastructure for computationally intensive learning analytics, and in particular for generating reports that mix static text with live data visualisations.

The i2b2 (Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside) Hive is a set of microservices aimed at genomics researchers, providing the functionality needed to construct a research workflow.

iRODS software creates virtual collections, allowing the user to interact with their stored data without needing to keep track of, or even have ultimate control over, the storage and computing facilities hosting the information.

Kepler is a scientific workflow modelling and management system that enables users, regardless of programming experience, to set up data analysis pipelines.

LabTrove is a blogging platform specifically designed for use in a research environment.

myExperiment is an online social networking service aimed at scientific researchers; the site fosters collaboration by allowing members to share scientific workflows, experiment plans, and other digital objects.

RSpace is an electronic lab notebook (ELN) system, provided by Research Space. Its roots are in the eCAT electronic lab notebook, which was designed specifically for individual laboratories. RSpace’s functionalities go beyond this, from an ELN for solo researchers to a full, enterprise level offering for institutions.

Taverna is a management system designed to assemble, run, document and share scientific workflows.
