+The strategy of the Airavata framework is a minimalist architectural design - a conceptually
simple to understand modular, componentized software - which is easy to install, maintain
and use. This service oriented architecture helps Apache Airavata to blend into diverse software
systems. Early adopters of Apache Airavata includes Science Gateways which integrate applications,
workflows, data collections with computational resources like Extreme Science and Engineering
Discovery Environment (XSEDE), The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC)
and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). 
 This page provides a sample set of projects using Apache Airavata. Please note that this
list if not comprehensive by any means and only to give ideas on possibile integrations. If
you are aware of such projects built over Airavata, we would appreciate if you could communite
the same by posting the project details to Users of Dev [Mailing Lists](/community/mailing-lists.html).
+## BioVLab
+The Biology Virtual Collaborative Labs (BioVLAB) provides reconfigurable cloud computing
workbench built using Apache Airavata tools to execute workflows on Amazon EC2 resources.
The BioVlab project developed workflows include:
+* Protein Sequence workflow
+* MicroArray Workflow
+* microRNA and mRNA Integrated Analysis (MMIA)
+* Methylation profiling of genomes containing methylated CpG sequences.
+Airavata helps BioVLab workbench lower the barriers of setting up and maintaining computational
resources and building and configuring bioinformatics tools and databases. 
+More details about the project can be found on [BioVLab Project Website][biovlab-web].
+## DES-SimWG
+The simulation working group for the Dark Energy Survey Dark Energy Survey is using Airavata
to develop High throughput workflow environment for cosmological simulations. The simulations
provide support for analysis of systematics in the three methods associated with large-scale
structure (LSS). The workflows devloped and executed using Airavata tools will assist the
Simulation Working Group with coordinating a Blind Cosmology Challenge (BCC) process, in which
a variety of sky realizations in dierent cosmologies are analyzed.
+Apache Airavata interfaces DES workflows with XSEDE resources to produce multiple syn- thetic
sky surveys of galaxies and large-scale structure in support of science analysis for the Dark
Energy Survey. The Airavata workflow infrastructure makes it possible to scale executions
to level of fifty 1010-particle simulations.
+More details can be found of [DES Website][des-web].
+## LCCI
+The Leadership Class Configuration Interaction (LCCI) project targets to accurately predict
properties of nuclei important for astrophysical and fusion energy processes. Many of these
properties are inaccessible to laboratory experiments since either the nuclei are highly unstable
or the required experimental precision cannot be obtained. Using computational resources at
the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), the project has obtained
converged ground state energies and nearly-converged excited states of several light nuclei
using realistic nuclear interactions, and the results compare favorably with experiment. 
+LCCI is one of the DOE SciDAC UNEDF program’s collaboration effort and focuses on Ab
Initio and Configuration Interaction computation for nuclear physics theory. The project unifies,
preserves and disseminates and provides a user-friendly environment to enable calculations
planned for extreme-scale computers and archive the results. 
+The LCCI project uses Apache Airavata to develop workflow infrastructure to democratize the
access to the nuclear physics simulations executing on remote supercomputing resources. 
+More details about UNEDF can be found on the [Website][lcci-web].
+## ODI
+The One-Degree Imager is a gigapixel mosiac camera being built by WIYN Observatory with a
pixel scale of 0.1 arcseconds for the 3.5-meter telescope. The ODI camera is an array of 32+2
separate CCD controller with Orthogonal Transfer Array CCD devices to do real time image correction
based on guide star video streams. From a continuous stream of guide star images, telescope
guiding and atmospheric image aberration can be reduced using real time image shifting via
orthogonal charge transfer on the CCD.
+Apache Airavata enables the ODI's Pipeline, Portal, and Archive (PPA) system to executes
the NOAO High Performance Pipeline System (NHPPS) pipelines on XSEDE resources.
+More details about ODI can be found on the [Website][odi-web].
+## OLAM
+The Ocean Land Atmosphere Model Science Gateway is a collaboration between a consortium of
professors, research scientists and students from the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel
School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, Science Gateways Group at the Pervasive Technology
Institute, Indiana University, hydrology modelers and water resource managers from the South
Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), and government scientists from NOAA’s Atlantic
Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory. 
+The project is currently in development and OLAM’s unique, flexible mesh refinement
capability, combined with local high-resolution land surface characteristics databases and
XSEDE computing resources, will make it possible to generate unrivaled regional climate change
projections that can be used to guide water management decisions in South Florida.
+More details about OLAM model can be found on [Website][olam-web]. 
 ## ParamChem
-ParamChem project is creating cyberenvironments to automate the process of parameterization
for classical molecular mechanics (MM) and semi-empirical (SE) Hamiltonians and allow for
wide dissemination of the developed parameters. The Project is developing an extensible cyberenvironment
for the rapid and systematic parameterization of novel Hamiltonians; the systematic extension
of currently available models, with the resulting parameters sets from both. For more details
about the project visit [ParamChem website][pc-web].

 ParamChem integrates with Apache Airavata Workflow framework to generate QM reference data,
monitoring parameter optimization and analysis. The Architecture of ParamChem integration
with Airavata and more details are on [Wiki][pc-airavata-wiki]
 Airavata is pleased to leviate ParamChem from Cyberinfrastructure details and rather focus
on developing more accurate descriptions of the static and dynamic properties of a wide range
of material, pharmacological and biological systems using theoretical methods by simplifying
the task of parameter optimization. This will allow for the generation of high quality parameters
for a wide variety of molecular systems. Improvements in the accuracy of modeling as well
as the range of accessible chemical systems will benefit such fields as chemistry, nanotechnology,
medicine and biology, among others. In addition, analytical models used in engineering fields
such as structural mechanics and fluid dynamics will become accessible to molecular level
+For more details about the project can be found on [ParamChem website][pc-web].
+## UltraScan
+The Ultrascan Laboratory Information Management System provides a user friendly web inter-
face for evaluation of experimental analytical ultracentrifuge data using the UltraScan modeling
+The UltraScan  Laboratory Information Management System, uses Airavata to execute analytical
ultracentrifugation analysis experiments on XSEDE. These experiments provide information about
biological or synthetic molecules for experimental biochemists, biophysicists, and material
+For more details about the project can be found on [UltraScan Website][us-web]
