The purpose of this meeting was to inform the members of the bioinformatics and grid research communities as well as members of the NC research and education community about the NC BioGrid project. In the meeting we shared perspectives on the roles a bioinformatics grid could play in our diverse community and outlined the plans for creating the NC BioGrid Testbed. We also discussed the technical issues and general timelines associated with the overall NC BioGrid Project. Finally, we proposed a project structure that frames participation in terms of various advisory and working groups.
