Neuroscientists are using speedy lines to build banks of brain images, while Arizona archaeologists digitize artifacts and plant pathologists exchange genomic maps. Those are among over 1200 projects listed at The Advanced Applications Database, a catalog of research and education projects that rely on high-speed networks such as vBNS and Internet2. Set up partly to link potential collaborators and partly to help administrators track who's using the system, the list runs the gamut from atomic physics to fine arts. Browsers can sift the offerings by category, including discipline and institution.
