Demo Workspace

We will use the notebook, Annotate_Manifest, from BioC2020_Workshop_Jupyter workspace for our live demo. You will clone this workspace and start your own notebook in PLAYGROUND MODE.

  1. Go to
  2. Clone this workspace:
  • Assign a unique workspace name
  • Use the Billing project, “bioc2020-workshop-jupyter”

  1. From your cloned workspace, go NOTEBOOKS tab
  2. Open the notebook, Annotate_Manifest
  3. Start your notebook in PLAYGROUND MODE

Share workspaces

  • Cloning a workspace makes you the owner, and allows you to experiment with code and data in your own copy of a workspace without running the risk of affecting a group workspace. Cloning also allows you to use a different Billing Project to cover workspace analysis costs. Cloning is useful if you want to run computations in a shared workspace where you only have “read access.” Cloning creates a completely independent copy of the workspace in which you are the owner and sole user.

  • Sharing a workspace allows collaborators to actively work together in the same project workspace. (reference)

Different runtime configurations

You can decided the runtime environement of your workspace at the project level. Below are two example workspaces with different runtime enviornment

1. BioC2020-Workshop-RStudio
Jupyter Environment R/Bioconductor: (Python 3.7.8, R4.0.2, BiocVersion 3.11.1, tidyverse 1.3.0)

2. BioC2020-Workshop-Jupyter
Other Environments -> Project-Specific Environment ->
