A researcher needs to analyze data collected from research instruments. Examples of instruments include: radio, microwave and optical telescopes; genome sequencers; satellites; electron microscopes; and sensor networks.
User Importance Summary:
Many scientific goals rely on the ability to analyze data collected from instruments. Major Research Instruments (MRIs) represent a huge investment by the national science agencies, and without the ability to analyze the data they produce, our return on these investments is severely undermined.
