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.
PANOPLY is a computational framework for applying statistical and machine learning algorithms to transform multi-omic data from cancer samples into biologically meaningful and interpretable results. In this post, D. R. Mani explains how his team is leveraging Terra to make PANOPLY accessible to a wide range of researchers.
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.
