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.
One of our biggest feature developments so far this year has been the addition of Galaxy, the popular open-source bioinformatics application, to Terra's interactive analysis portfolio.
PANOPLY is a computational framework for applying statistical and machine learning algorithms to transform multi-omic data from cancer samples into biologically meaningful and interpretable results. In this post, D. R. Mani explains how his team is leveraging Terra to make PANOPLY accessible to a wide range of researchers.
The Broad Institute has been awarded the high profile "FedRAMP Moderate" security authorization for the operation of the Terra platform. David Bernick gives us insight into the FedRAMP program and explains what this means for researchers using Terra to access, analyze and share sensitive data.

Guest blog post by Kylee Degatano, Product Manager for the Lantern Pipelines team in the Data Sciences Platform at the Broad Institute. I'm very excited to announce the recent release of WDL Analysis Research Pipelines (WARP), a brand new, public GitHub repository of cloud-optimized WDL workflows that are used in production at the [...]
One of the foundational principles of Terra is that it's designed to be an open ecosystem, not a walled garden — there are no lock-in mechanisms. If after a while you decide to leave, you can take all the analysis tooling you've been using here and expect it to still be [...]
One of the challenges we face in human genomic research is that there is a lot of data that we can't freely share with one another, for legal and ethical reasons. This can be particularly vexing for tool developers who need data for testing, and for educators who need to provide [...]
