Chipster - a user-friendly bioinformatics software for analyzing high-throughput data

Friday, November 20, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

Chipster is a user-friendly bioinformatics software for analyzing high-throughput data such as RNA-seq and single cell RNA-seq. Chipster provides an easy to use web interface for over 450 analysis tools and a large collection of reference genomes. Chipster allows users to visualize data interactively, and it keeps track of the analysis steps taken. This provenance tracking combined with an easy way to share analysis sessions with other users allows researchers to collaborate efficiently. 

Chipster was developed by CSC – IT Center for Science which also runs a national Chipster server in Finland. The Chipster code base is freely available and many institutes around the world have set up their own Chipster servers. EGI operates a Chipster server which is available for the whole scientific community.

EGI Operations and responsibilities of an NGI

Thursday, October 29, 2020 - 10:00 to 11:00

This webinar will give an overview of tried and tested approaches to federated operations, both at the level of the infrastructure as well as at the national level.

DIRAC services for EGI users

Friday, October 23, 2020 - 15:00 to 16:00

DIRAC is a complete framework for building distributed computing systems of any level of complexity. Initially developed for the LHCb High Energy Physics experiment at the LHC collider at CERN, the framework was generalized for the use by multiple scientific communities in various domains. Services based on the DIRAC software are offered by several grid infrastructure projects such as France-Grilles or GridPP/UK. Since 2014, the DIRAC services have also been provided for the EGI users. 

CernVM-FS for Containers

Thursday, October 15, 2020 - 15:00 to 16:00

Delivering complex software stacks across a worldwide distributed system is a challenge in high-throughput scientific computing. The global-scale virtual file system CernVM-FS distributes more than a billion software binaries to hundreds of thousands of machines around the world.

Using compute services in EOSC: Experiences and advices from EOSC-hub

Tuesday, November 10, 2020 - 14:00 to Wednesday, November 11, 2020 - 15:00

EOSC-hub brings together advanced computing services into a federated solution that covers the needs of research communities: from powerful and fully-customisable Infrastructure as a Service to high-level and interactive computing platforms. This webinar introduces the main compute services of EOSC-hub with a focus on how they can be used for data and compute driven research and to support the development of advanced services for research and science. The webinar will showcase actual examples of use cases in production that leverage the EOSC-hub services for their daily needs.

Getting access to services in the EOSC Portal - The user and provider perspectives

Tuesday, October 27, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

The objective of the webinar is to present to service providers how their services can be offered via the EOSC portal. The talk will also highligth the different access options for the user to access services, and how users’ requests are served by the providers. Benefits and the duties an EOSC service provider has after the service is being published in the EOSC portal will be also presented.

EOSC-hub Technical Architecture

Tuesday, October 13, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

This webinar will describe the EOSC-hub proposal for a Technical Architecture for EOSC. The proposed architecture is based on the concepts of service composability and interoperability and aims to facilitate access to services, lower barriers to address complex digital needs, integrate data and services from multiple suppliers, support FAIR data and enable cross-infrastructure interoperability.

The architecture includes functions, interfaces, APIs and standards as technical concepts, with the final aim of fostering interoperability and, ultimately, service composability. It is
based on the concept of individual building blocks usable in fulfilling functions. Each building block is specified with the definition of a technical and interoperability specification that includes an high-level architecture, suggested EOSC standards and APIs and interoperability guidelines. Example of technical and interoperability specifications will be presented during the webinar.

Integrating services into EOSC through EOSC-hub

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

The EOSC-hub project operates many of the core elements of the European Open Science Cloud, and acts as the main facilitator of onboarding new services in EOSC. The main entry point for onboarding is the EOSC Portal. This webinar will provides assistance for service providers who want to share services via EOSC with the EOSC Portal and with the use of extra services offered by EOSC-hub. The presentation will describe the various options for onboarding in the EOSC Portal and for integrating with the Authentication-Authorisation Infrastructure, with the Availability-Reliability monitor, with Usage accounting system, with the Helpdesk, with the Service Management System. The webinar is meant to provide an overview of the ‘big picture’ of EOSC onboarding as enabled by EOSC-hub, so providers can choose the best approach for integration into EOSC.
