25sep11:00 am2:00 pmNCI Cancer Research Data Commons: Cloud Computing


Event Details

NCI Cancer Research Data Commons (CRDC) provides access to large-scale datasets such as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) that span multiple data types, including genomics, proteomics, imaging, and clinical data. The CRDC offers bioinformatics tools directly in the cloud, thus eliminating the need to download and store large-scale datasets. The cloud also offers greater computational capacity to manage big data analysis, further accelerating research and promoting new discoveries. The training session will provide an overview of NCI CRDC and highlight several research studies to show the utility of the CRDC and its resources. In addition, there will be hands-on training on one of the following platforms: the NCI Cloud Resource platform Seven Bridges’ Cancer Genomics Cloud (SB-CGC), Broad Institute’s FireCloud, or the Institute for Systems Biology’s Cancer Genomics Cloud (ISB-CGC) for prospective users.


(Friday) 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
