Cancer Genomics at Petabyte Scale: Introduction to the Cancer Genomics Cloud for scalable collaborative, and reproducible analysis of TCGA data and more.
Meeting Summary: The Cancer Genomics Cloud (CGC), powered by Seven Bridges, is one of three pilot systems funded by the national Cancer Institute to explore the paradigm colocalizing massive genomics datasets, like The Cancer Genomics Atlas (TCGA), alongside secure and scalable computational resources to analyze them. The CGC makes more than a petabyte of multi-dimensional data available immediately to authorized researchers. In this workshop, participants will gain hands-on experience using the CGC to build and deploy customized analytical workflows to analyze cancer genomics data. Attendees will learn how to use the visual and programmatic interfaces to scale their analyses to hundreds of executions
