The Integrative Biology VRE project was a JISC funded Virtual Research Environment (VRE) project based at the University of Oxford that ran for two years between April 2005 and March 2007. The project resulted in a large-scale VRE demonstrator which investigated the use of existing collaboration frameworks to support the entire research process of an international research consortium, namely that of the Integrative Biology (IB) project. The IB is an EPSRC funded e-Science Pilot project to develop a Grid infrastructure to support the post-genomic research of nine post-doctoral researchers, and to provide training for 10 PhD students, across seven UK Institutions, and with partners in IBM and the University of Auckland. This presentation will highlight the set up of the IBVRE, and in particular how the project addressed the user community's requirements in the areas of graphical user interfaces and collaborative tools, both pressing needs bearing in mind the distributed and collaborative nature of the research undertaken by this community. website:
