- The website will host up to 20 GB of physical genome mapping data for the proposed grant-funded project “Structural Variation of Diploid and Polyploid Plant Genomes”.
Start: February 5, 2014
End: April 20, 2017
- Principal Requester: Joshua Udall
- Website: GenomeStructure.byu.edu
- The mission of the Life Sciences Information Technology Department (LSIT) is to deliver high-quality services in a timely manner to meet the needs of the faculty and staff in the College of Life Sciences. To better manage limited resources, LSIT requires that all services provided must be approved and agreed upon by all involved parties. The goal of this agreement is to ensure that all parties are aware of any and all expectations, outcomes and costs associated with the service, as well as the duration of the service.
- In the course of providing these services LSIT makes use of the following technologies:
- ASP.NET using C#
- DNN CMS
- Windows Server / IIS
- Microsoft SQL Server
- Teterik RadControls
- Service Details
- LSIT will provide the Principal Requester with a website hosted through the DNN Content Management System (CMS) owned by the College of Life Sciences. The website will host up to 20 GB of physical genome mapping data for the proposed grant-funded project “Structural Variation of Diploid and Polyploid Plant Genomes”. LSIT will assist the Principal Requester in setting up the website to accept data from certain College personnel and make it publicly available for download.
- LSIT will wait to create the website until confirmation is received that the grant has been funded. If the grant is not funded, this agreement will be terminated.
- LSIT will be responsible for providing an optimum effort in service performance in terms of uptime, page loading time, stability, security and overall functionality. They will also provide website traffic analytics and provide backup of the website to prevent loss in the event of a server failure. The backups are taken nightly with the retention period for backups depending on available storage resources. The current retention period is three years. Backup recovery services will not be provided for the recovery of data lost due to user negligence and/or lack of expertise.
- The principal Requester and any approved students will be granted administrative access within the website. LSIT will also provide training and basic support for the site. The extent of said training and support will be determined by LSIT according to need and availability of resources.
- It will be the responsibility of the Principal Requester to maintain the site in accordance with the College of Life Sciences Web Content Guidelines.
- Renewal and Transference
- This agreement is valid for the Effective Dates. LSIT will maintain this website throughout this period. At the end of this period LSIT will contact the Principal Requester. The Principal Requester can then decide whether to create a new agreement or to discontinue the service. If a new agreement has not been approved within two weeks of the end of the Effective Date, LSIT will disable the service.
- In the event that the Principal Requester is no longer employed by the College of Life Sciences, the website can be transferred to another College employee. At this point the currently existing agreement is terminated and a new agreement will need to be created with the new Principal Requester. If ownership of the service is not transferred within two weeks of the original Principal Requester leaving BYU, the service will be disabled.
- If for any reason the Principal Requester no longer requires the website, they may contact LSIT to discontinue this agreement.
- Intended Use of Service
- The Website will further the mission of the College of Life Sciences by making research data publicly available to facilitate collaboration between BYU and other institutions and to fulfill the requirements of the proposed grant-funded project “Structural Variation of Diploid and Polyploid Plant Genomes”.
