The CoAKTinG (Collaborative Advanced Knowledge Technologies in the Grid) project has developed a set of integrated tools to enhance collaboration between e-Scientists. As one of three case studies, these tools are being applied within the Combechem e-Science pilot project. Two levels of integration are being explored: straightforward deployment of generic CoAKTinG tools, and a “deep” integration between these tools and the Combechem grid. The deeper integration supports the publication at source research objective of Combechem, in which a digital record is maintained through the information processing chain that starts in the laboratory, supporting retrospective use in the e-Science process. In this paper we provide an overview of the tools and we focus in particular on the adaptation of one of the tools for the Combechem application.
