Virtual research environments (VREs) are online computational workbenches providing researchers access to relevant datasets, analysis pipelines and visualizers in an integrated manner.
Using openVRE framework, we are building a cloud-based VRE integrating data repositories and analyses relevant for COVID-19 research. This dedicated instance will include access to the European Genome-Phenome Archive, EuroBioImaging, as well as to the ISCIII COVID-19 registry. Importantly, users willinging to use access controlled data should follow the established guidelines for each of the repositories. Other public resources, e.g. European Nucleotide Archive, will also be accessible from the platform. The VRE will be equipped with different analysis toolkits. If you are interested in aggregating your own analysis or data service, please contact us.
UseGalaxy.es is the Spanish Galaxy Instance powered by the computational cloud infrastructure associated with the StarLife project. The instance is maintained by the INB/ELIXIR-ES teams at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) in close collaboration with European partners from the UseGalaxy.eu network and ELIXIR, the European Life Science Infrastructure for Biological Information. The instance contains specific tools and workflows to analyse COVID-19 data, COVID-19 genomics and COVID-19 cheminformatics.
