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.
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.
The Broad Institute's Data Sciences Platform is sponsoring this year's Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC 2021), taking place virtually July 29-30. Abstracts are due Thursday, May 6, 2021 (late posters June 3). BOSC is a great way to get involved in the bioinformatics community; we're proud to support this event and we hope to see many of you there virtually.
