  • 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.

  • Building pharmacological workflow blocks for virtual screening (BioExcel and OpenPHACTS)

    17 July 2017

    Building pharmacological workflow blocks for virtual screening (BioExcel and OpenPHACTS) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/building-pharmacological-workflow-blocks-for-virtual-screening BioExcel’s webinar series continues with Nick Lynch, who will introduce Open PHACTS, an integrated pharmacological data platform and [BioExcel strategic partner](http://bioexcel.eu/partnership-between-bioexcel-and-open-phacts-foundation/). Nick is joined by Stian Soiland-Reyes and Adam Hospital who will explain in details how BioExcel is building a Virtual Screening workflow combining Open PHACTS with the BioExcel-supported tools for biomolecular simulation and modelling. The [Open PHACTS Discovery Platform](http://www.openphacts.org/) brings together vast amounts of linked data in a single integrated, open infrastructure providing a platform for researchers to access and query publicly-available pharmacological data. The platform integrates major open data sources (e.g. ChEMBL, UniProt, WikiPathways, SureChEMBL, DrugBank, Disgenet and their associated Chemistry) on compounds, patents, diseases, targets and pathways; linked by identifiers, semantic and structural chemistry information, re-exposed as a collection of unified web APIs, workflow components plus tool integrations. The platform is maintained by the [Open PHACTS Foundation](), which is supported by members from biopharmaceutical industry and Research Organisations with an active developer and user community. [BioExcel](http://bioexcel.eu/) is an European Centre of Excellence that support academia and industry in the use of high-end computing in biomolecular research. Part of BioExcel’s roadmap for workflows is to develop Workflow Blocks for biomolecular simulation and modelling, which includes Open PHACTS as a data service. Such blocks, including the Open PHACTS platform, can be deployed in private or public cloud environments, and used to build portable pipelines. BioExcel is currently developing a series of [pilot use cases](http://bioexcel.eu/research/pilot-use-cases/), including a Virtual Screening workflow using Open PHACTS. In this webinar, **Nick Lynch** (Open PHACTS Foundation), **Stian Soiland-Reyes** (The University of Manchester) and **Adam Hospital** (IRB Barcelona) will present the Open PHACTS platform and how it will be used with BioExcel workflow blocks to build a virtual screening pipeline. [BioExcel webinars](http://bioexcel.eu/category/webinar/) include an audience Q&A session during which attendees can ask questions and make suggestions.

  • 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
  • BioSimSpace – filling the gaps between molecular simulation codes

    27 June 2018

    BioSimSpace – filling the gaps between molecular simulation codes https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/biosimspace-filling-the-gaps-between-molecular-simulation-codes [BioSimSpace](https://biosimspace.org) is a flagship software project from the [CCP-BioSim](https://ccpbiosim.ac.uk) and [HEC-BioSim](https://hecbiosim.ac.uk) biomolecular modelling communities. The project aims to make it easier for researchers to develop, share and re-use biomolecular simulation workflow nodes. The software problem in our community is that we have lots of different pieces of software that are all incompatible and are not interoperable. This forces the community to hand-write small scripts for converting between different file formats, or to generate different software input files. The resulting scripts are specific for the software and task performed, leading to the community generating lots of bespoke and brittle workflows. BioSimSpace solves this problem by providing an **interoperability layer** between the major molecular simulation packages. In effect, BioSimSpace provides the shims that fill in the gaps between codes. BioSimSpace Python scripts can be run from the command line, used as workflow nodes in packages such as Knime, or run on the cloud as Jupyter notebooks. In this talk, we will show how BioSimSpace has been implemented, will talk about its capabilities and our future plans, and will demonstrate some BioSimSpace workflow nodes running on the cloud. 2018-06-27 15:00:00 UTC 2018-06-27 16:00:00 UTC BioExcel Molecular modelling Molecular dynamics Workflows University of Manchester [] IntermediateBeginners [] [] GROMACSPythonKNIMEJupyter notebook
