Billing and Secure Collaboration in Terra (The Course)
The health and life sciences data revolution has arrived. Accurate and inexpensive genome sequencing is a reality, high-resolution imaging is becoming routine, and clinical data is increasingly available in machine-readable formats. These breakthroughs bring us to the threshold of a new era in biomedicine, one where the data sciences hold the potential to propel our understanding and treatment of human disease.
Enter Terra (http://terra.bio), a scalable platform for biomedical research. Terra's mission is to enable the next generation of collaborative biomedical research by building an open platform that connects researchers to each other and to the datasets and tools they need to achieve scientific breakthroughs. This course is meant to provide a guided learning experience that gives you a foundational understanding of billing and secure collaboration in Terra.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
1) Understand how to accrue costs in the cloud and pay for them
2) Set up your Terra Billing project
3) Create a collaborator group
4) Articulate what Authorization Domains are and when you would want to use them
We recommend that before starting this course, you take our “Introduction to Terra” course to learn more about Terra and it’s capabilities. But it’s not required – you can dive right into this course if you wish, especially if you are already familiar with Terra.
