In this workshop, representatives from the Characterisation community will share their experience in developing and operating large deployments of MyTardis. We will emphasise how MyTardis helps to securely store and manage data from a variety of different instruments. We will also outline the short- to medium-term roadmap for MyTardis development and our plan to engage the wider community to help us build the next-generation platform for instrument data management. Finally, we will run a hands-on workshop on best-practices for deploying and operating MyTardis, specifically targeted at developers and system administrators.
Dr Jamie Flynn from the 3D Tissue Clearing and Lightsheet Microscopy Facility, University of Newcastle Hunter Medical Research Institute, together with Dr William Palmer and Dr Antony Martin, are using MyTardis to manage the wealth of imaging and clinical data from the Hunter Cancer Biobank and to set up a Virtual Biobank.
This work benefits facility managers and gene sequencer users by providing an automated and structured method to capture, store and share the results of sequencing runs with associated quality reports and metadata.
Under the Research Data Services (RDS) Image Publication initiative, three partners – VicNode, QCIF and Intersect – have integrated nearly 90 instruments with cloud-based data management software to ensure that all data generated by these instruments is automatically captured, managed and delivered to the cloud for processing, analysis and visualisation. MyTardis is being used to integrate and provide management across a wide range of scientific instruments.
