ENIGMA MEG data upload

From MEG Core
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Data to be included in the Enigma MEG mega-analysis and data harmonization procedure will be uploaded using the Globus software. Globus is a secure, fault-tolerant, peer-to-peer software based on GridFTP. Secure control signals are communicated with the Globus website, but data transfer is only performed between endpoints (peer-to-peer).

An endpoint per lab will be created on NIH storage and given access credentials via email. Only users within your lab and the NIH MEG Core will be able to view and write data in the provided endpoint. Once you receive an email from globus connecting you to a globus endpoint, you will need to create an account on the globus website associated with your institution.
