How to enable a genomic revolution without risking a data privacy catastrophe
Data security and compliance are recurring themes in the many conversations I have with researchers and organisations in life sciences.
I have had the opportunity to get to know a great many people in life sciences. Whether pharma, drug discovery, biotech, academia, or DTC companies, they all share the common goal of advancing medicine and improving life.
Researchers can now tap new disease discoveries using Medley Genomics HotNet2 at enterprise scale, over any system, across distributed data with Lifebit CloudOS
Lifebit CloudOS operates as a managed informatics platform that removes the industry barrier of vast amounts of inaccessible distributed omics data, enables federated bioinformatics analysis and machine learning
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have gained traction since the mid 2000s, with over 7,800 GWAS studies performed which have facilitated the detection of over 159,200 unique ‘needles’ – SNP-trait associations, all archived in EMBL-EBI’s GWAS Catalogue.
The advent and refinement of visualisation tools has allowed scientists of all programming levels to unearth the valuable insights that lie in these complex file types, which can consist of thousands to billions of data points. One such tool is the Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV), a high-performance visualisation tool for the interactive exploration of large genomic files.
In this blog post, we will show you how it is possible to run any of the stable release nf-core pipelines with ease over the Cloud by using the Deploit platform. We have used the RNA-seq pipeline as an example because it is the most popular of all the nf-core pipelines. The following can also be done for any of the nf-core pipelines.
