  • Large-scale analytical workflows on the cloud using Galaxy and Globus

    16 November 2016

    Large-scale analytical workflows on the cloud using Galaxy and Globus https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/large-scale-analytical-workflows-on-the-cloud-using-galaxy-and-globus We would like to invite you to attend the 8th webinar in BioExcel’s webinar series on computational methods and applications for biomolecular research, which will take place on 16th November 2016: Presenter: Ravi Madduri (introduction by Stian Soiland-Reyes) When: Wed 16th November 2016 16:00 CET (2016-11-16 15:00 UTC) Registration: Free In this BioExcel webinar we are delighted to have Ravi Madduri from Argonne National Laboratory and University of Chicago present Globus Genomics, a system developed for rapid analysis of large quantities of next-generation sequencing (NGS) genomic data, combining Galaxy workflows with cloud technologies like Amazon EC2 and Globus File Transfer. This system achieves a high degree of end-to-end automation that encompasses every stage of data analysis including initial data retrieval from remote sequencing centers or storage (via the Globus file transfer system); specification, configuration, and reuse of multi-step processing pipelines (via the Galaxy workflow system); creation of custom Amazon Machine Images and on-demand resource acquisition via a specialized elastic provisioner (on Amazon EC2); and efficient scheduling of these pipelines over many processors (via the HTCondor scheduler). The system allows biomedical researchers to perform rapid analysis of large NGS datasets in a fully automated manner, without software installation or a need for any local computing infrastructure. Ravi’s work is part of the BD2K center Big Data for Discovery Science, building infrastructure for reproducible workflows using minids (minimal viable identifiers), analyzing data at scale using identified Docker containers, publish results in to Globus Publication services thus providing an end-to-end framework for reproducible research. In this BioExcel webinar, Ravi will present Globus Genomics and the technologies used to achieve large-scale analytical Galaxy workflows on the cloud. We think this will be of interest not just for the genomics community, but for any scientific workflow users who need to consider distributed deployments, data management and scalability. 2016-11-16 15:00:00 UTC 2016-11-16 16:00:00 UTC BioExcel Whole genome sequencing High-throughput sequencing Genomics Workflows University of ManchesterUniversity of ChicagoArgonne National Laboratory Please register at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5808939110698431491.

  • 2017 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2017)

    26 June - 1 July 2017

    Montpellier, France

    2017 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2017) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/2017-galaxy-community-conference-gcc2017 GCC2017 will be in Montpellier, France, 26-30 June and will feature two days of presentations, discussions, poster sessions, lightning talks, computer demos, keynotes, and birds-of-a-feather meetups, all about data-intensive biology and the tools that support it. GCC2017 also includes data and coding hackathons, and two days of training covering 16 different topics. GCC2017 will be held at Le Corum Conference Centre in the heart of Montpellier, just 10km from the Mediterranean. This event will gather several hundred researchers addressing diverse questions and facing common challenges in data intensive life science research. GCC participants work across the tree of life, come from around the world, and work at universities, research organizations, industry, medical schools and research hospitals. If you work in or support data intensive life science research then GCC2017 is an ideal opportunity to present your work. Abstract submission is now open. The deadline for oral presentations is Apr 15 (23:59 Paris local time), and posters and computer demonstration submission closes on May 27 (23:59 Paris local time). The Lightning talk submission deadline is June 23 (23:59 Paris time). Early registration is also open and starts at less than 55€ / day for post-docs and students. You can also book low cost conference housing when you register. (Travel fellowships will be offered by the Galaxy Community Fund and will be announced shortly.) About Galaxy Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for data-intensive biomedical analysis used by tens of thousands of researchers around the world. It supports ad hoc exploration and analysis through scalable and repeatable data analysis pipelines for large research studies. Galaxy is available in over 90 free and publicly accessible web servers, on commercial and national cloud infrastructures, and is locally installed at hundreds, if not thousands, of research organisations around the world. 2017-06-26 09:00:00 UTC 2017-07-01 00:00:00 UTC Le Corum Palais des Congrès - Opéra Berlioz, Esplanade Charles De Gaulle, Montpellier, France Le Corum Palais des Congrès - Opéra Berlioz, Esplanade Charles De Gaulle Montpellier Hérault France 34000 [] Galaxy community [] biologists who have more data than they can manage in a spreadsheetbioinformaticians meetings_and_conferencesreceptions_and_networkingworkshops_and_courses first_come_first_served []
  • CWLEXEC: Run Common Workflow Language on HPC with IBM Spectrum LSF

    28 February 2018

    CWLEXEC: Run Common Workflow Language on HPC with IBM Spectrum LSF https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/cwlexec-a-new-open-source-tool-to-run-cwl-workflows-on-lsf The [Common Workflow Language (CWL)](http://www.commonwl.org/) is a community-led specification for describing analysis _workflows_ and tools in a way that makes them portable and scalable across a variety of software and hardware environments, from workstations to cluster, cloud, and _high performance computing_ (HPC) environments. [IBM Spectrum LSF](https://www.ibm.com/us-en/marketplace/hpc-workload-management) (formerly IBM Platform LSF) is a complete workload management solution for demanding HPC environments. Featuring intelligent, policy-driven scheduling, it helps organizations accelerate research and design while controlling costs through superior resource utilization. Recognizing the popularity of CWL among LSF users, we introduce a new open source project **CWLEXEC** to support running CWL workflows on LSF. The project will feature smooth integration with LSF with high efficiency and scalability, self-healing of workflows, support user-specified submission options while keeping CWL definitions portable, and other benefits. * **Title**: CWLEXEC: A new open source tool to run CWL workflows on LSF * **Presenter:** Qingda Wang, Principal Architect, IBM Spectrum LSF Family Products and OEM * **Time**: 2018-02-28 14:00 GMT / 15:00 CET 2018-02-28 14:00:00 UTC 2018-02-28 15:00:00 UTC BioExcel Bioinformatics Genomics Workflows University of ManchesterBioExcel CoE Stian Soiland-Reyes http://ask.bioexcel.eu/ [] bioinformaticiansHPC users workshops_and_courses registration_of_interest WorkflowsCWLHPCLSF
