My work at the Earlham Institute is focused upon Grassroots API, contributing to the BBSRC-funded cross-institute Delivering Sustainable Wheat programme

Grassroots is a distributed server-client infrastructure for sharing services, ranging from Blast searches, literature searches and custom map-based applications. and data with the aim of making links between them wherever possible, much like how a Google search can link between images, webpages and map locations. Using metadata for potentially disparate sets of scientific data, we can make connections between them allowing users to get access to as much information as possible.
