CANUBE Project

CANUBE is an Open Science Project granted by the Second Call for Proposals of the Bio-TIC Campus of International Excellence of the University of Granada (UGR). The project proposal is published as CANUBE: Ciencia Abierta en la NUBE with a CC-BY-SA licence, we will try to provide access as open as possible to all our performed jobs during the project.


From the objectives of the proposal:

Canube proposes spreading open science models in the whole CEI-BioTIC and among the other components of the project, as well as the inclusion of cloud computing concepts in it. These concepts will be applied to different areas of research and development, both UGR researchers as aggregates.
The idea that brings together components of this project is open knowledge and free software, that are at the heart of open science in the cloud. So it has different freelancers also connected to such tasks, related companies to cloud computing free software and groups, both UGR and outside, known for their contributions to free software, open knowledge, open science, heritage conservation and cloud computing. This is reflected in the following objectives.
  1. Diffusion of models of open science and science 2.0 among CEI-BioTIC aggregates.
  2. Promotion of existing platforms for using permanent open workflows, and software development that allows the use of existing tools for workflows design and execution in different areas of knowledge.
  3. Applying the above concepts to different lines of research in CEI-BioTIC for distributed computing, molecular biology, astrophysics.
You can follow our activities through the CANUBE Blog and the project Twitter account @canubeProject. We have also launched a CANUBE GitHub repository, where we will be working in the CANUBE different projects.
The members of the project belong to both the University of Granada as well to other organizations and companies. The AMIGA group contributes to CANUBE project in the development and diffusion of scientific workflows (mostly applied to astrophysics based on Virtual Observatory data and services), as well as in the promotion of widely used platforms for the design, execution, publising, sharing and re-use. (e.g. Taverna Workflow Management System, MyExperiment)
