Advances in microscopy and imaging have created new possibilities in many fields of research, but these advances have also generated large amounts of data that can overwhelm traditional data management systems. Along with collaborators at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, Alexander Ropelewski plans to establish a BRAIN Imaging Archive that takes advantages of infrastructure and personnel resources at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. The Archive will include a pipeline for data submission, user access and support, and BRAIN Initiative community engagement through an online presence, workshops, and hackathons. This unique resource will provide an accessible and cost-effective way for the research community to analyze, share, and interact with large image datasets of the BRAIN Initiative.
