Computational genomics has become a core toolkit in the study of biological systems at the molecular level. To run genomics workflows, a researcher needs access to advanced computer systems including compute, storage, memory, and networks to move and mine huge genomics datasets. The Cloud provides scalable compute solutions to run workflows. In this workshop, we will demonstrate how one can create a compute cluster in the Cloud using Kubernetes and run containerized genomics workflows. The Cloud workflows will include pulling high-throughput DNA datasets from the NCBI-SRA data repository, performing reference genome mapping of SRA RNAseq datasets, and building a gene co-expression network.

Target audience: Undergrads, Grad students, Post-Docs, Faculty, IT professionals. This workshop is limited to 40 participants.

We recognize and thank the following companies that contributed resources to make this workshop possible: Praxis AI LLC, Cisco, and c-Light.
