Matthew Hanlon manages the Web and Mobile Applications Group at the Texas Advanced Computing Center. And Matt Vaughn directs the Life Sciences Computing Group at TACC. Vaughn and Hanlon present a one-hour core conversation for South by Southwest Interactive on Monday, March 16. It's called A Next Generation Platform for Open Data.

In the podcast they discuss their work on the Arabidopsis Information Portal, a new online resource for plant biology research.

Matthew Hanlon: We're looking to attract both data scientists and portal developers, anyone who has experienced developing, hosting, running or trying to market an open data portal to the community.

Matthew Vaughn: The Arabidopsis Information Portal, Araport for short, serves two purposes. It's a clearinghouse for genetic, genomic, protein and gene expression information for the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana… But it's also a resource for people who build portals.
