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.
