Webinar: Deploying your own tools on the CGC

Recording of the Webinar

In this webinar, Dr. Gaurav Kaushik will demonstrate how to rapidly and easily bring your own tools to the Cancer Genomics Cloud (CGC) using the Software Development Kit (SDK). With the SDK, any command line tool can be run on the CGC by describing it using the Common Workflow Language. First, we will demonstrate how to use Docker to package a tool so that it can be accessed by the CGC. Then we will demonstrate examples of “wrapping” Linux command line tools and scripts (such as in R). Finally, we will tiptoe into advanced use cases, where you will learn how extend the utility and functionality of your tools to make use of the properties of the TCGA data and metadata on the CGC.
