The challenges faced by these researchers are:
- The manual process required to integrate their research data with other datasets
- No availability of standardised analytical processes
- The delay in transitioning from analysis to publication ready result
This project leverages the environment set up provided by the GVL-EA. The GVL-EA provides biologists and clinicians a ready to use analysis platform bypassing the time-consuming and complex process of setting up the underlying computational infrastructure. The "Cancer Genomics Linkage Application" will extend this environment by developing tools to manage data synchronisation; integration tools specific to the APGI research and provide some exemplar workflows using the Galaxy workflow system.
This application aims to increase the ease by which users can integrate their data with other data sources. It will provide mechanisms to publish data sources and user workflows to Research Data Australia (RDA) in order to increase search ability and re-use by the Australian research community.
