WORKSHOP: Practical tools for managing, moving and analysing data
Organizer: Australian BioCommons
Host institution: Australian Biocommons
Start: Friday, 04 December 2020 @ 13:00
End: Friday, 04 December 2020 @ 16:00
Country: AustraliaTarget audience:
Are you constantly moving, storing, sharing and analysing data in complex scenarios throughout your research projects?
Managing data well is now more important than ever for biological research but it can also be frustrating and difficult to know where to start!
This hands-on workshop will explore and discuss data management challenges and introduce simple steps towards managing active research data. Participants will become familiar with CloudStor and its associated tools and services for organising, storing, sharing and analysing data, in a safe and secure way.
Topics such as cloud storage, collaborative editing, versioning and data sharing will be discussed and demonstrated. You will learn how to set up an automatic way to move your data to the cloud so that your data is safe and secure. We’ll also show you how CloudStor integrates with data analysis solutions including Juypter Notebooks and Galaxy.
This is a hands-on workshop using CloudStor (AARNet’s file sync, share and storage service). CloudStor is available to Australian researchers and provides one terabyte of storage to every individual researcher at AARNet-connected institutions.
Trainer: This event will be led by Sara King, AARNet, and hosted by Australian BioCommons.
By the end of this workshop you should be able to:
Identify common data management challenges
Use CloudStor tools to store, move and manage data
Describe methods for integrating CloudStor storage solutions with data analysis
Who the workshop is for
This hands-on workshop is tailored for biologists and requires no programming experience.
Date/Time: 4 December 1:00pm - 4:00pm AEDT
