W7: Dealing with Instrument Data at Scale: Challenges and Solutions - Monday, September 20, 2021, 12:45 - 2:15 p.m.

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. Common need is end-to-end solutions that streamline data management throughout the research data lifecycle. This workshop will demonstrate a fast and reliable way to address these challenges via Globus.

Enabling the "F" and "A" in FAIR Data - Tuesday, September 21, 2021, 3:35- 4:00 p.m.

Sharing data with collaborators–and the broader community–is a pervasive requirement in research endeavors. However, the "F" and "A" of FAIR data are particularly challenging at scale. We will describe how capabilities provided by Globus at the University of Chicago make data findable and accessible, using simple frameworks and services that enable rapid development of data portals/commons in a variety of life sciences projects.
