Project Status: Recruiting
Project Region: Northeast
Submitted By: Bruce Segee
Project Email: rocko.graziano@maine.edu
Project Institution: University of Maine, Augusta
Anchor Institution: NE-University of Maine
Project Address: Jewett Hall
Augusta, Maine. 04330

Preferred Start Date: 02-01-2021

Mentors: Larry Whitsel
Students: Recruiting

Project Description

This project aims to facilitate the sharing of large data sets for research and education across Maine as well as across the Open Storage Network. It is the intention of Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratories (MDIBL) to make data files and metadata publicly available in exchange for free access. This data is of interest and value to Data Science faculty at the University of Maine Augusta, for teaching and research as part of a system-wide data science degree.

The project requires the development of a front-end and back-end system, preferably developed in Go and deployed in a container, preferably Docker. The end result will allow uploading, downloading, metadata tagging, and HPC job submissions that use the data.
