A short primer on what is the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health, why it matters, and links to recordings from the 2022 Plenary Meeting.
Designed to provide federated access to viral genomic data, the Viral AI network will use Terra to provide user-friendly access to relevant analysis capabilities.
Today is the second day of the 8th plenary meeting of GA4GH, aka the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health, an international collaborative effort that has been driving the development of standards for infrastructure, policy, and security in the genomics field for nearly a decade. […]
The AnVIL platform offers intuitive tools to support researchers meet all their NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy needs.
From infrastructure projects to connected communities: Building a cloud data ecosystem with deep roots
The cloud is the future of data sharing and collaboration. Yet to make it all work, it’s critical to provide appropriate tools and interfaces that streamline data access and analysis operations for researchers.
Jonathan Lawson explains how cumbersome data access processes that create major bottlenecks in accessing genomic data and limit scientific impact can be streamlined through ontologies and automation.
We’ve mentioned the AnVIL project a number of times in recent blog posts — covering topics such as Dockstore, RStudio, Galaxy, and DRS URIs — so it feels like it’s high time that we gave you some more context. Specifically, we thought it might be useful to reiterate the key goals of the AnVIL project and explain briefly how Terra fits in with the other AnVIL components.
DRS stands for Data Repository Service API, one of the interoperability standards developed under the aegis of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH). In this blog, we explain the big picture of what DRS is for and how it liberates you from having to worry about certain data management problems.
A commentary from the Terra partners leadership on a recently published Nature News feature titled “The broken promise that undermines human genome research”.
We are taking the next step in our journey by joining our efforts with Microsoft, a partner that truly needs no introduction. This multi-year partnership will bring together advanced technologies, industry expertise, and scale to accelerate the next generation of the Terra platform for health and life sciences research. […]
