Dr. Martin Morgan gives us an overview of the R / Bioconductor AnVIL package and shows how his group’s work empowers researchers to work more easily on the cloud.
Terra offers an assortment of cloud environments pre-configured for interactive analysis with popular tools and packages. In response to popular demand, we recently updated Terra’s R-based notebook environments to include the latest version of Seurat, a widely-used R package for multimodal single-cell analysis.
Ever since we introduced Jupyter Notebooks in Terra, we’ve sought to provide default environments pre-loaded with software packages that are likely to interest you, to minimize the amount of setup necessary to get your work going. However, we’ve found that there’s a huge amount of variation in the needs and preferences of researchers, from […]
This week, we released one of those changes that looks small on the face of it but is actually a really big deal. Specifically, we upgraded the cloud environment (previously called “runtime”) that we provide in Terra for running Jupyter Notebooks to support persistent disk storage. Until now, one of the limitations of our […]
We know that the 4 minutes it takes to create a cloud environment to perform a Jupyter Notebook analysis can feel like a long time. To reduce this time and save you cost, Terra has added support for using standard Google Compute Engine Virtual Machines (GCE VMs) as the underlying compute/runtime. Terra researchers […]
