The CIPRES Science Gateway was initially created as the CIPRES Portal, under the NSF-sponsored Cyberinfrastructure for Phylogenetic Research (CIPRES) Project. The functionalities and concepts were created by a team that included Tandy Warnow, Bernard Moret, Mark Holder, Paul Hoover, Lucie Chan, Terri Schwartz, Rutger Vos, Mark Miller, Peter Midford, Andres Varon, and Wayne Maddison.

In December, 2009 the CIPRES Portal became the CIPRES Science Gateway with kind assistance from Nancy Wilkens-Diehr and many outstanding Science Gateway staff members. The Gateway is currently staffed as follows:

  • Mark Miller, PI and customer service.
  • Mark Zhuang, development and maintenance of the core application
  • Tony Chen, development and maintenance of the core application
  • Wayne Pfeiffer, new code integration and benchmarking of parallel codes on high performance clusters.

In February, 2015, CIPRES released a RESTful API to allow integration of CIPRES capabilities into other desktop software and web applications, and to allow their use through scripting languages. The RESTful API was supported by NSF DBI-1262628

Current development of the CIPRES Science Gateway is supported by NIH award 5R01GM126463-01.
Day to day operations are support by NSF DBI award 1759844.

Computational resources provided by the Gateway are made possible by an award from NSF's XSEDE project. We are grateful for their support of our project.

We welcome user feedback and suggestions.
