From infrastructure projects to connected communities: Building a cloud data ecosystem with deep roots
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.
Introducing WARP: A collection of cloud-optimized workflows for biological data processing and analysis
Guest blog post by Kylee Degatano, Product Manager for the Lantern Pipelines team in the Data Sciences Platform at the Broad Institute. I’m very excited to announce the recent release of WDL Analysis Research Pipelines (WARP), a brand new, public GitHub repository of cloud-optimized WDL workflows that are used in production at the […]
One of the foundational principles of Terra is that it’s designed to be an open ecosystem, not a walled garden — there are no lock-in mechanisms. If after a while you decide to leave, you can take all the analysis tooling you’ve been using here and expect it to still be […]
Today is the second day of the 8th plenary meeting of GA4GH, aka the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health, an international collaborative effort that has been driving the development of standards for infrastructure, policy, and security in the genomics field for nearly a decade. […]
In this post, Amanda Kedaigle, a computational scientist from the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research is describing her experience with the Single-Cell Portal (SCP), a data visualization portal built on top of Terra. As a computational biologist, two words that are constantly used to describe my work are “collaborative” and “interdisciplinary” […]
Life as a biomedical researcher is a rollercoaster of emotions. One moment you’re marvelling at how technology has revolutionized the field — SO. MUCH. DATA. — and the next, you’re tearing your hair out at how antiquated some of our processes still are — SO. MUCH. PAPERWORK. Yes, there is a veritable cornucopia […]
