Workflows are great for large scale data processing operations, especially those involving multiple steps that take a long time, and must be run reproducibly on many samples. Terra’s powerful workflow management system empowers you to take full advantage of the cloud’s vaunted elasticity without having to manage any computational resources directly. The built-in Cromwell execution engine supports workflows written in the Workflow Description Language (WDL), a highly portable domain-specific language stewarded by the OpenWDL community and adopted as one of the standard workflow languages of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH).

When it comes to the critical step of extracting insights from your data, you need to be able to inspect, visualize and apply algorithms to the data interactively. Terra provides customizable cloud environments that support popular data science and bioinformatics applications. These environments are backed by virtual machines that you can use out of the box or customize through a user-friendly web form. Within a given environment, you can use the application as if it were on a regular workstation; install additional packages if needed, access cloud-hosted data, do work and save data to persistent storage.
