CCB Web Services consist of algorithms and web-apps that can perform remotely, communicate using web protocols, are built on top of existing XML standards, and allow interactions between incompatible applications. CCB Web services simplify this communication by relying on a standardized mechanism for description, location, and communication of different online applications. Common web service frameworks consist of three components – communication protocol, service description and service archival/traversal.
- iTools is an infrastructure for managing (databasing, traversal and comparison) of diverse computational biology resources.
- Segmentation Validation Engine This web resource provides an online framework for evaluating the results of skull-stripping algorithms. Users may browse the results produced by others, or they may download the test data, segment it with their own algorithm, and upload it to have it evaluated.
