CyVerse Events at PAG XXVI
CyVerse invites you to take part in user-oriented events taking place across several days at this year's Plant and Animal Genome Meeting.
Saturday, January 13th
Time: 08:00AM - 10:10 AM
Location: California Room
PAG Online Program Link: Session 4772
Course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) scale research methods to allow large numbers of students to explore open-ended problems. CUREs typically use a common set of biochemical and bioinformatics tools to allow students to obtain novel results within the time-frame of a one or two semester course. This workshop will present practical reports of CUREs in action in different institutional and class settings, as well as data on how CUREs improve student attitudes toward science and retention in STEM disciplines. Projects on DNA barcoding on microbiome analysis use DNA Subway and other computational resources provided by CyVerse, an NSF-funded cyber-infrastructure for biological research (DBI-0735191 and DBI-1265383).

As the wealth of data increases across the life sciences, so does the complexity for managing and analyzing those data. A new class of bioinformatic platforms are emerging that provide web-enabled user interfaces as well as application programming interfaces. This has enabled developers of these platforms to more easily share their computational resources and use those developed by others. The goal of this workshop is to share experience, ideas, technology, and best-practices on developing and using bioinformatic platforms that share data and computational services.

CyVerse (the successor to iPlant Collaborative) serves the entire life science community by delivering the platforms, tools, and datasets that enable data-driven discovery. This session updates the community on the project's activities including new features and services. Presentations by exemplar users illustrate ways CyVerse is being used by individual investigators and as platform for entire projects. CyVerse provides resources and support for every level of user - from bench-biologists working on their first RNA-Seq project, to collaborations who need the computational support to deliver high-impact science and datasets. CyVerse is funded by the National Science Foundation (DBI-0735191 and DBI-1265383) and provides free, user-friendly access to data storage/management platforms, cloud computing, and high-performance computing. We also provide learning materials, training, and support, including serving open-source developers who want to deliver tools and pipelines to the research community.
