  • ELIXIR Webinar: Access to Sensitive Human Data with the ELIXIR AAI

    23 May 2018

    ELIXIR Webinar: Access to Sensitive Human Data with the ELIXIR AAI https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-webinar-access-to-sensitive-human-data-with-elixir-aai The ELIXIR Human Data Use Case together with the Compute Platform (ELIXIR AAI) will present a solution to enforce access to sensitive datasets in a distributed environment (for instance, the IaaS clouds). The ELIXIR Sensitive human data user community has scenarios where researchers’ permissions to access datasets are managed in a central database (like EGA) but their access control needs to be enforced in a distributed environment (e.g. IaaS clouds provided by different ELIXIR Nodes). EXCELERATE WP9 together with the ELIXIR AAI Task has developed a standards (OAuth2) based architecture to meet this requirement. In the webinar, Mikael Linden (ELIXIR AAI co-chair) and Juha Törnroos (EXCELERATE WP9) will present the ELIXIR AAI Permissions API and demonstrate how it is used to manage access to EGA dataset replica in the ELIXIR Finland cloud. 2018-05-23 14:00:00 UTC 2018-05-23 14:00:00 UTC [] [] [] [] [] []

    BioHackathon https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/biohackathon ELIXIR France with the support of the ELIXIR Hub and the ELIXIR interoperability platform and in collaboration with the National Bioscience Database Center (NBDC) and the Database Center for Life Science (DBCLS) is organising a BioHackathon in November 2018 in Paris. Scope The topics of this biohackathon will be broader than semantics and interoperability typically predominant in the BioHackathons organised in Japan. The priority topics will be defined by ELIXIR platforms, ELIXIR use cases and a selection of communities proposed by ELIXIR France. We specially welcome non ELIXIR members to join and work with ELIXIR partners on activities relevant for ELIXIR and the bioinformatics community in general. Though most of the topics of the BioHackathon are expected to be aligned to existing ELIXIR activities the BioHackathon will also be open to new tools and communities (eg. Cytoscape and reproducible networks) Goals Engage the technical people in the bioinformatics community inside and outside ELIXIR to work together on topics of common interest aligned to ELIXIR activities Make more robust the interactions with new ELIXIR communities (ex.  Metabolomics and Proteomics) to establish and reinforce collaborations through hands-on programming activities organised at the event.
