The National Institutes of Health (NIH) created the RECOVER Initiative to learn about the long-term effects of COVID. Its goal is to rapidly improve our understanding of and ability to predict, treat, and prevent PASC (post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2), including Long COVID. The Consortium collaborates with patients, caregivers, and community representatives across all levels of the initiative, including in national leadership roles and within local communities in study locations
Terra is a portal to a vast ecosystem of tools and data. This article is meant to guide users associated with RECOVER to relevant resources. These resources fall in two categories: Data access and platform tutorials.
Listed in this section are resources to help you understand how to take advantage of the data ecosystem to which Terra gives you access.
- Terra supports multiple scientific partnerships by staging tools and data, creating secure links to protected data sets, and in some cases hosting portals for projects such as AnVIL and BioData Catalyst. To better understand how scientific partnerships fit into the Terra ecosystem, check out our article on Terra's support for scientific projects.
- Researchers can store and search data hosted by consortia like NHLBI BioData Catalyst or AnVIL using Gen3 - an open-source platform for building cloud-based data commons and ecosystems. To learn about using Gen3 data, start with this article on how to access Gen3 data.
- Participants of certain projects may have access to credits in a pre-loaded Google Billing account through a program called STRIDES. If you are eligible for such credits, see this article on how to access STRIDES credits.
Check out the workspaces highlighted in this section to get you going with Terra!
- Terra workspaces come with integrated applications such as Jupyter notebooks and RStudio for interactive data exploration and downstream analysis. For a crash course on Terra's interactive analysis capabilities, use our Notebooks Quickstart featured workspace. You can either play around in the workspace yourself, or use any of these companion materials:
- Terra is designed to make high throughput computing in the cloud as smooth as possible. Terra workflows can be wired to your workspace data tables, which you can use to organize data regardless of where in the cloud it exists. For a crash course on how to configure and launch workflows, use our Workflows Quickstart featured workspace. You can either play around in the workspace yourself, or use any of these companion materials:
