Make the most of the NGS

We are keen to make sure that everyone is aware of the new tool recently developed and released by the NGS.

The NGS UI/WMS service is now in full production allowing NGS users to exploit all sites on the NGS including the partner resources.

Since going into pre-production in October, the UI has been upgraded and extensive stress testing has been undertaken with 1000's of jobs run through the service. The UI now also checks your certificate proxy when logging in and corrects for many common proxy problems hopefully making your life easier!

The documentation has also been extensively updated on the new NGS web site and the NGS wiki. The majority of scientific application documentation pages now have examples of running the applications via the UI-WMS. Some of these are fleshed out in tutorials on the NGS wiki, linked from the main tutorials above), with more tutorials and examples in the pipeline.

If you have any questions or problems using the service, please mail the NGS helpdesk at support(at)
