Our one-day Terra workshops are designed to get you up and running on the platform quickly with hands-on exercises and information. The morning sessions include a brief overview of Terra and how it fits into the Data Biosphere, followed by hands-on exercises with Jupyter Notebooks and BigQuery (Google's big data storage platform for tabular data). The afternoon focuses on workflows. We discuss cost and security, then get hands-on with examples. We first set up and run a full workflow on a small sample. At the end of the day , we outline a case study for reproducible research - how we used Terra to reproduce the analysis to understand the genetics that underlie a particular phenotype, from a published paper on Tetralogy of Fallot.
The times listed below are examples we can adapt to your preferred start or end times. The morning and afternoon sessions each have a 15 minute break in the middle.
