Introduction to AnVIL

Course Info

This course includes 2 attempts.

Description

AnVIL is a cloud based ecosystem that colocates high value data sets with commonly used bioinformatics tools in a secure environment.

By providing access to data and tools in a secure environment that can scale to meet the computational needs of researchers, AnVIL eliminates logistical concerns and allows researchers to focus on biological problems. Providing access to such a platform with tens of thousands of human genome sequences will allow the genomics community to ask new questions that were not logistically feasible before.

This course is designed to be a brief introduction to cloud computing and the AnVIL platform. Learn how this new resource can help you access data, scale your computing resources, and democratize access to genomic data science.

Learning objectives

After taking this course you will be able to:

  • Understand the components of the AnVIL computing platform
  • Define cloud computing
  • Understand the components of cloud costs
  • Explain example workflows and how they run on AnVIL

Things you need to do this course

This course is designed for people with limited background in genomics and genomic data science and so is a good introduction for anyone looking to understand cloud computing for genomics and the AnVIL platform. The only requirements are:

  • A computer with a web browser and internet connection
  • The ability to type and follow instructions.

How you will be graded

The course has a series of short quizzes, one for each lesson. You will get two attempts at each quiz and your best score for each quiz will count toward your final score. If you receive more than 70% of the points across all quizzes you will pass. If you receive more than 90% of the points across all quizzes you will pass with honors.
