STFC/NERC Bioinformatics & Environmental 'Omics Network Workshop: Developing Cloud computing to support data intensive biology

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in or organising a workshop, seminar, course

Thomas Robert Meagher - Organiser

Cloud computing holds great promise for the future of Big Data analysis. This is particularly true for data intensive areas such as environmental omics, where large datasets are likely to reside in centralised storage facilities, such as Jasmin, EBI, or ELIXIR. Cloud-based computing allows users to analyse such data on HPC systems by creating ‘instance-based’ computer images that can be ported directly to the computer system where such data resides. Thus, users can access big data and analyse it using the full power of remote HPC facilities while at the same time using a familiar interface with customised software. Thus, cloud-based computing has the potential to combine accessible and customised interfaces with the full computational power and storage capacity of state-of-the-art HPC systems.

This workshop will explore the current state of cloud-based computing facility and what steps are needed to bring the full power of cloud-based computing to the wider scientific community, including environmental omics.
