Abstract

The advent of eScience is not only providing an infrastructure for research, but it is also ideal for the provision of services. Recent developments at the UK National Crystallography Service (NCS), in collaboration with the CombeChem eScience testbed project, have been aimed at developing an eScience infrastructure to facilitate the crystallographic experiment. A seamless distributed computing approach is shown to be able to transform a conventional but high throughput service. Access to use the NCS facilities and expertise and a mechanism to submit samples is granted through a secure Grid infrastructure. The user may then monitor and steer the data collection aspects of their experiments and download results data staged to a securely accessible location.
