The Australian BioCommons Bring Your Own Data (BYOD) Platform enables highly accessible, highly available, highly scalable analysis and data sharing capabilities for the beneﬁt of life science researchers nationally.
The Australian BioCommons is new research infrastructure which aims to enhance the productivity, capability and capacity of Australian research biologists and research informaticians. A key component of the Australian BioCommons is a Bring Your Own Data (BYOD) Platform – a suite of software and workﬂow development and deployment activities.
The expected capability enhancements include:
- Integrating the Bioplatforms Australia (BPA)-funded instrument base for genomics, proteomics and metabolomics;
- Enhanced accessibility to reference data prioritised by Australian research communities;
- Managed access to datastores and compute infrastructures to meet analysis demand;
- Adoption of best practice features and functionalities realised within the international Galaxy project.
Who is this project for?
Australian BioCommons will beneﬁt the majority of life science researchers for whom bioinformatics is an increasingly important part of their research activities as well as a smaller set of leading researchers who develop biodata analysis techniques and for whom bioinformatics is a primary research methodology.
What does this project enable?
The BioCommons will enhance the productivity, capability and capacity of Australian research biologists and research informaticians by providing a new ability to apply and improve a growing array of digitally enabled bioinformatics research techniques, and to stay at the forefront of a wave of international investment and developments in these new technologies
