Project deliverable Open Access
West-Life aims to bring complex data analysis in Structural Biology to a simple Web browser-based Virtual Research Environment (VRE). Capitalizing on European and National projects, such as Instruct, WeNMR, and CCP4, as well as other projects, like EGI-Engage, through the MoBrain Competence Center, West-Life thus starts from a leading position in the Structural Biology field, in that its partners are already providing valued services in specific disciplines. After defining the baseline performance of 19 pre-existing web services provided by 6 project partners in Deliverable 5.2, and reporting an update in the Periodic Report, we now provide usage statistics for 2017 for all services in operation at this date. These show a sustained growth of the majority of services as well as an increasing usage of the newly introduced services. Furthermore, we introduce five new services (3 of which were described in the mid-term periodic report) - 3DBionotes , CCP4-MoRDa, PowerFit, DisVis, and SpotON - which were recently made available to the scientific community through the support of the West-Life project.
