AnVIL Demos: Interactive Genomic Data Science with Bioconductor

AnVIL Demos
Thursday, July 20, 2023 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM EDT

What are AnVIL Demos?

AnVIL Demos are a series of virtual meetings that highlight what you can do on the NHGRI Analysis, Visualization, and Informatics Lab-space (AnVIL), a cloud-based computing platform for genomic data science. AnVIL Demos will start out with a 30-minute demonstration on the platform followed by open time for Q&A and user support.

In the demos, presenters will highlight anything from a capability of the platform to a scientific analysis powered by AnVIL. If you’re interested in showcasing how you use AnVIL at a future AnVIL Demos session, reach out to Natalie Kucher.

After the demo, we’ll open up the floor to answer questions about the demo and to answer any other questions you might have about AnVIL.

What’s in this Demo?

11:00 AM - 11:30 AM ET – Demo on AnVIL

In this demo, the Bioconductor team will share an overview of how researchers can use Bioconductor in AnVIL to perform interactive genomic data science.

  • Get acquainted with the cloud environment selection process, RStudio's git interface, and precompiled binaries
  • Have a look at an app that helps with ontologically aware interrogation of the EBI/NHGRI GWAS catalog
  • explore human pangenome representation and variant calling with the AnVIL package and a copy of the HPRC workspace

11:30 AM - 12:00 PM ET – Q&A

Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions about the demonstration and we will have AnVIL and Terra Support on the line to answer questions about AnVIL beyond the demo.
