Web Portal to Serve Between Two Nations
On September 29th, Advantage Industries Inc. was awarded the contract to design and build the LABEX-USA website for the ARS office within USDA. This website will serve as a public portal of information between the scientists of two nations and additionally serve as a repository of key documents in the website's secure back-end infrastructure.
LABEX-USA is a 'virtual' laboratory in the United States, hosted by USDA's Agricultural Research Service (ARS) for collaborative work with researchers from EMBRAPA, the Brazilian Organization for Agricultural Research. LABEX wanted to improve information sharing between scientists, and has identified a dedicated web-site as the most effective way to accomplish this goal. By creating an internet-based solution, the web-site will serve as an ideal portal between EMBRAPA and ARS for the sharing of ideas, documentation, past research, and current opportunities.
