Sam Friedman, data scientist in the Broad's Data Sciences Platform, explains how using the Intel OpenVINO framework enabled him to accelerate the GATK CNN tools.
Terra has offered the ability to use GPUs in workflows for quite some time, yet many of you have told us that you also need to be able to run GPU-enabled computations interactively, so we're really excited to roll out GPU support for Jupyter Notebooks.
This blog covers some key concepts and practical solutions for tackling the question of compute costs incurred by running workflows, which are typically the hardest to predict among the various types of cloud costs.
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.
