Wrangler Data-Intensive System Opens to Scientists

The Texas Advanced Computing Center at The University of Texas at Austin, Indiana University, and the University of Chicago announced that Wrangler, a groundbreaking data analysis and management system, is now in early operations for the open science community. Wrangler uses Globus for rapid and reliable data transfer and sharing.

Many communities are ready and committed to adopt the system. Two projects already underway involve the evolutionary biology community, which uses an open source bioinformatics tool called OrthoMCL to group genes into families based on sequence similarities.
