In a series of five webinar sessions, experts from ELIXIR and the Galaxy community in the US and Europe will demonstrate how open access and open science are fundamental for fast and efficient response to public health crises. The focus will be on research reproducibility and transparency, using exclusively open source tools and the Galaxy platform. The goal of the series is to demonstrate publicly accessible infrastructure and workflows for SARS-CoV-2 data analyses. The webinar sessions will guide participants step-by-step through setting up and executing the SARS-CoV-2 data analyses workflows developed by the global Galaxy community. After completing the series, participants will be able to fully reproduce the workflows and conduct their own analyses of SARS-CoV-2 data. The webinar series will start on 30 April 2020 with the first introductory session. Subsequent sessions will take place in weekly intervals.

It will also explain the motivation behind the Galaxy COVID-19 projects and explain the benefits of open reproducible research and transparent and interoperable analytics. Speakers: Anton Nekrutenko, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Penn State University (USA) and co-founder of the Galaxy Project. Sergei Pond, Professor of Biology, Institute for Genomics and Evolutionary Medicine, Temple University, US Frederik Coppens,  Head of Node of ELIXIR Belgium and Co-Lead of the ELIXIR Galaxy Community Björn Grüning, Technical Coordinator of ELIXIR Germany and Co-Lead of the ELIXIR Galaxy Community Register Session 2: Genomics/Variant Calling  7 May 2020, 17.00-18.00 CEST (starts at 16.00 BST, 11.00 EDT, 8.00 PDT) The second session will present the initial analysis of the SARS-CoV-2 genome, published on bioRxiv. It will guide the participants through accessing and collecting the available datasets, the genome assembly and the analysis of the  within-sample sequence variants. It will also explain how to deploy on a Galaxy instance all the tools and workflows needed to reproduce the analysis. Speakers: Anton Nekrutenko, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Penn State University (USA) and co-founder of the Galaxy Project. Wolfgang Maier, PostDoc at the University of Freiburg and member of the European Galaxy team Register Session 3: Cheminformatics: Screening of the main protease 14 May 2020, 17.00-18.00 CEST (starts at 16.00 BST, 11.00 EDT, 8.00 PDT) This session will present the Galaxy workflow to identify candidate molecules for COVID-19 drug treatment, using molecular docking simulation of the SARS-CoV-2 main protease. These simulations are used to predict the binding positions of the candidate molecules in the protease binding site, score the quality of each pose, and compare the results with experimental crystallographic data. The computationally intensive workflow was executed through a distributed compute network available via the Galaxy Europe platform. The webinar will present methods and workflows for the identification of potential COVID-19 drug candidates. Special emphasis will be given to the complex methods that have been applied and that have consumed more than 25 years of CPU and GPU time.

Introduction to the ELIXIR tools platformand development of software FAIR metrics 2. How We Are Supporting Essential Open Source Scientific Software: CZI’s EOSS Program The majority of open source software for science is undervalued and lacks funding for maintenance, growth, development, and community engagement—especially after the initial phase when it’s linked to original research. At the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative we aim to support the people that work on this software to ensure long-term utility and value. The Essential Open Source Software for Science program supports domain-specific and foundational tools essential to conducting biomedical research. We will cover the current and future status of the program and our plans for community building and support beyond funding.    2020-05-28 16:00:00 UTC 2020-05-28 17:00:00 UTC [] [] [] [] [] []
