BCC2020 is online, global, and affordable. The meeting and training are now done, and the CoFest is under way.

The 2020 Bioinformatics Community Conference brings together the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) and the Galaxy Community Conference into a single event featuring training, a meeting, and a CollaborationFest. Events run from July 17 through July 25, and is held in both the eastern and western hemispheres.

Tutorial, AnVIL, Video

Bioconductor provides more than 1800 R packages for the analysis and comprehension of high-throughput genomic data. Most users install and run Bioconductor on a personal computer or perhaps use an academic cluster. Cloud-based solutions are increasing appealing, removing the headaches of local installation while providing access to (a) better, scalable computing resources; and (b) large-scale 'consortium' and other reference data sets. This session introduces the AnVIL cloud computing environment. We cover use of the cloud as
  • a replacement to desktop-style computing;
  • integrating workflows for 'upstream' processing of large data resources with interactive 'downstream' analysis and comprehension, using Human Cell Atlas single-cell datasets as an example; and
  • querying cloud-based consortium data for integration with a users' own data sets. 

  • Participants should be comfortable working with R and RStudio.
  • Some familiarity with Bioconductor is helpful but not required.
  • No prior cloud-based experience is necessary.
  • A wifi enabled laptop with RStudio installed.

I am an evolutionary biologist by training, and my worst grades in college were in statistics and computer science. So it is a little ironic that I have spent the last fifteen years of my life in bioinformatics, working on the Bioconductor project for the statistical analysis and... Read More →
