Scientific topic: Human genetics, Genomics

Operations: Data handling

Description:

Australian human genome initiatives are generating vast amounts of human genome data. There is a desire and need to share data across projects but researchers face significant infrastructural, technical and administrative barriers in achieving this. To efficiently share and distribute their genome data they need scalable services and infrastructure that: is easily administered; allows for the efficient data management; enables sharing and interoperability; and is aligned with global standards for human genome data sharing.

Australian BioCommons has brought together a team from Zero Childhood Cancer (Zero), the University of Melbourne Centre for Cancer Research (UMCCR), Australian Access Federation and Melbourne Bioinformatics to explore the use of Gen3 technology. Establishing systems for easier management and sharing of their human genome data holdings is no simple task, and the group wants to ensure that other Australian providers and Institutions can benefit from their experience and easily deploy the same solution in the future.

Gen3 is an open source software suite that makes use of private and public clouds to tackle the challenges of data management, interoperability, data sharing and analysis. It has been used in several very large NIH-funded projects that collectively house and describe data derived from hundreds of thousands of human samples (e.g. NCI Genomic Data Commons, BloodPAC, BrainCommons, Kids First Data Commons).

In this webinar you’ll hear from UMCCR and Zero about their experiences and progress towards establishing Gen3 instances to better enable better human genome data sharing in Australia. They will outline the challenges and opportunities that have arisen through this Australian BioCommons project and demonstrate the capabilities of Gen3 for human genome research.

Date/time: 16 February 2022 - 13:00-14:00 AEDT/ 12:00-13:00 AEST / 12:30 - 13:30 ACDT / 10:00-11:00 AWST
