    3636                 <li> GENI <b>aggregates</b> provide resources to experimenters with GENI credentials.  GENI has a number of different aggregates that provide a variety of resources for experimentation.  An important aspect of planning your experiment is deciding what resources you need (resource types and numbers) and which aggregates might be able to provide you these resources.</li>
    3737                  <li>A GENI <b>slice</b> is a virtual container that can hold a collection of computing and communications resources for running an experiment or a wide area service. A slice might span multiple GENI aggregates.  An experiment is a researcher-defined use of resources in a slice; an experiment runs in a slice.  A researcher may run multiple experiments using resources in a slice, concurrently or over time. A GENI <b>sliver</b> is a set of resources that an experimenter has in a specific GENI aggregate, i.e. a GENI slice is comprised of a set of slivers. </li>
