Science Community Tools (SCT) provides software tools, collaboration environments, and resources that allow scientific communities and virtual organizations to advance scientific research and scholarship.
The scientist-friendly tools and resources that SCT provides enable teams of researchers to collaborate using cutting-edge software tools and environments. These include novel analytical, data management, and virtual collaboration environments. Heavily supported by external funding, SCT and its activities center around scientific virtual organizations that are often statewide, national or international in scope.
SCT consists of three management groups:
- Advanced Biomedical Information Technology Core (ABITC)
- Scientific Applications and Performance Tuning (SciAPT)
- National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS)
SCT supports biological and medical research like the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) and physics research like the analysis of data from the Large Hadron Collider.
