With the explosion of data in different dimensions of drug discovery, biomedicine and healthcare, a key challenge is the ability to connect the disparate data sources, discover the right analytics tools for a specific analysis and navigate through inter-operable analytics to provide executable insights. Garuda is an open, community-driven, platform that provides a framework to discover, connect & navigate through different applications on devices as well as in the cloud.
Through this workshop, we will provide an overview of Garuda platform, the alliance eco-system and a brief demonstration of the platform in action together with its various components. The demonstration is specifically designed to cater to an array of audience from different backgrounds with a goal towards re-imagining connectivity and integrated analytics in biomedical research, healthcare and beyond.
Attendance is limited to 30 people. Registration is free but mandatory. Participants should bring their own computer. For futher info please contact Paolo Tieri (paolo DOT tieri AT cnr DOT it) or Vipul Gupta (vgupta AT sbi DOT jp).
Session 1 (9.30 am -12.30 pm)
: Garuda Platform introduction and demonstration of its basic architecture.
- Session 2 (2 pm - 5pm), hands-on 1: Biological Pathway Modeling and Simulation. Attendees will learn how-to construct, simulate and manipulate biological networks in Garuda.
- Session 1 (9.30 am -12.30 pm), hands-on 2: Microarray Data Analytics. Participants will download processed microarray expression data from Open TG-GATEs (http://toxico.nibiohn.go.jp/english/) and perform enrichment analysis using gadgets such as Reactome, Biocompendium, ipath etc.
- Session 2 (2 pm - 5pm): In the final session of this 2-day workshop, attendees will learn from Garuda Technical Lead on how to "Garudify" their tool/scripts and publish it as a "Gadget" on Garuda Gateway.
