Analasys of Bioinformatics data trough Scientific Cloud Services
With increasing amounts of available biological data sets, there is a need for efficient access to their data processing and analysis for the purpose of finding new knowledge. To meet that need, it is necessary to allow participants-customized interfaces for interactive connecting of simple tasks to complex processes followed by the availability of the computing infrastructure for the efficient execution of these unanimous process. The first was made possible through systems for performing bioinformatics workflows (Eng. Bioinformatics workflow systems) while the second enables the scientific concept of cloud computing (Eng. Scientific cloud computing).
With that in mind, participants will be introduced to two systems Cloudman and Galaxy and will be trained for their own use, enhancing labor productivity and gaining added value for their work. Cloudman applications (cloudman.irb.hr), primarily developed by the CIC, enables easier management of resources of the computing Cloud and the establishment of user applications on it. From the perspective of bioinformatics tools, basic user application which Cloudman system provides support for the establishment in the Cloud is an application Galaxy. Bioinformatics applications Galaxy (usegalaxy.org) allows for more efficient operation (loading, processing, analysis) of bioinformatics data where all the working process is performed via a web interface.
The first day of the workshop the introductory lecture will be held on which the respective applications and projects will be presented. The second day the interactive workshop will be held where participants will have the opportunity to use these applications on their own laptops.
