If your day-to-day involves workflows with long-running tasks, I have good news for you: we just released a new checkpointing feature that makes it possible to save intermediate outputs for a task and resume work from that point if the task gets interrupted. For context, the Cromwell workflow engine we use in Terra already had a smart resume capability at the level of the workflow, called "call caching".
What better way to keep the rstudio::global(2021) party going than to share a video showing how to use RStudio in Terra? Yes, you read that right, RStudio is available in Terra! Specifically, we provide a cloud environment pre-configured to run the server version of RStudio, as an alternative (or complement) to Jupyter Notebooks. [...]
New year, new partnership… and a new blog series focusing on highlighting papers that we think will be of interest to many of you. For this first iteration, we review a review paper (review-ception!) fresh off the virtual press over at GigaScience, coming out of C. Titus Brown's lab at UC Davis, on the topic of workflow systems.
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.

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 [...]
Every year we run a workshop at the annual meeting of the American Society for Human Genetics, and it's a highlight of our year for many reasons. My favorite aspect of it is that we use the ASHG workshop to drive development of brand new educational materials and resources, and sometimes [...]
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 [...]
