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.
Many workflows generate intermediate files that you won’t ever use again once the pipeline has run to completion. You can reduce your data footprint — and your storage costs! — by getting Terra to delete them for you.
In my last blog post, I gave an overview of how Terra's data tables can help you streamline and scale up your data processing operations through the use of a data model that describes your dataset in a structured way. In this follow-up, I want to touch on some of the thornier questions that [...]
"This is not a question. I just wanted to say that I've avoided learning how to use Terra Data tables for a long time, primarily because I've used workflows that require sample sheet files, but I finally got to try it out and I must say it was quite powerful." -- A computational scientist, in [...]
