The rapidly growing size of genomic datasets introduces challenges of data transfer, storage, access, sharing, and computing. In this workshop, we introduce cloud-based genomics platform Terra as a potential solution. Terra hosts large-scale genomic and genomic-related data sets and provide secure remote access to them and to individually uploaded data resources. Terra also provides on-demand computational capacity through Google Cloud Platform, and interactive analysis interfaces such as Jupyter notebook and RStudio. Users can run best practice tools and pipelines already implemented or upload their own data or analysis methods to workspaces. Workshop participants will learn how to use Terra through the use-case examples, instructor-led live demonstration, and the Bioconductor AnVIL package.
This workshop is supported by the NHGRI Genomic Data Science Analysis, Visualization and Informatics Lab-space (AnVIL)
Participants will have the opportunity to access a pre-populated Terra workspace and run examples.
