Globus will have an exhibit where attendees can meet with our experts, see demos and get questions answered:

  • Globus supports management of PHI/HIPAA-regulated data and other protected data, including PII and CUI data - come get the details
  • Learn about some our newer features including support for scheduled and recurring transfers in the Globus web app
  • Hear more about the Globus platform, including the Globus Search service, which provides fine-grained access control over metadata as well as the data
  • Learn more about automating instrument data handling with Globus Flows
  • Pick up materials about the benefits of subscriptions for researchers, system administrators and developers. Already a subscriber? Come by and say hello! We would love to see you. Talk to our product team experts about research data management requirements at your organization, or schedule a 1:1 free consultation.

Title: Automating Instrument Data Management
Date/Time: May 16, 2023 1:45-3:45 p.m. ET
Speakers: Vas Vasiliadis, Rachana Ananthakrishnan

Instruments including cryo-EM systems, light sheet microscopes, gene sequencers, and X-ray beam lines play a critical role in biomedical research, where discovery is driven by analysis of increasingly large datasets. Managing the data generated by these instruments is complicated and time-consuming, presenting challenges for both the facilities who operate the instruments and the researchers who use them. Instrument facilities want data off their machines as quickly as possible, and require management tools that can scale to many users with very large datasets; they also need automation capabilities to offload routine data management tasks, saving time and money. And researchers just want their data as quickly as possible, so they can get to the job of analyzing the data, sharing it with collaborators, and publishing it to communities and data repositories. The common need is end-to-end solutions that streamline data management throughout the research data lifecycle. In this workshop, we will demonstrate a fast and reliable way to address these challenges via Globus.

Software Applications and Service track

Title: Building Robust Data Management into Life Sciences Applications
Date/Time: May 18, 2023, 10:25 a.m. - 10:55 a.m. ET
Speaker: Rachana Ananthakrishnan

Research data portals, science gateways, data commons, and web applications need scalable, secure data management solutions. The Globus platform as a service enables application developers to provide robust file transfer, data sharing, search, and automation capabilities within their own life science research data applications and services, while leveraging advanced identity management, single sign-on, and authorization capabilities. The platform is built on widely adopted industry standards such as OAuth and OpenID Connect for authentication/authorization, and uses trusted protocols such as GridFTP and HTTPS. By outsourcing research data management to Globus, developers can focus their efforts on core application logic

Cloud Computing track

Title: Unifying Access in Multi-Cloud Research Environments
Date/Time: May 18, 2023, 11:25 - 11:55 p.m.
Speaker: Vas Vasiliadis

Life sciences research environments are rapidly evolving to incorporate increasingly diverse cloud storage and computing resources. Using these multi-cloud environments efficiently requires researchers to integrate multiple components and become familiar with their unique access methods. We present a platform that unifies access to diverse storage and compute resources, both cloud-hosted and on premises, and demonstrate how familiar interfaces allow users to focus on their research and not on technology management.
