Predicting protein structures at scale using AWS Batch

Proteins are large biomolecules that play an important role in the body. Knowing the physical structure of proteins is key to understanding their function. However, it can be difficult and expensive to determine the structure of many proteins experimentally. One alternative is to predict these structures using machine learning algorithms. Several high-profile research teams have […]

Using miniwdl, GWFCore, and SageMaker Studio as a cloud IDE for genomics workflows

To keep pace with the growing scale of genomics datasets, bioinformatics scientists rely on shared analysis workflows written with portable standards such as the Workflow Description Language (WDL). The race to track SARS-CoV-2 variants notably illustrates rapid deployment of such workflows at scale on many platforms, including AWS. This post presents a new solution for […]

Cromwell on AWS: A simpler and improved AWS Batch backend

The latest release of Cromwell (v52) includes a number of major changes and improvements to the AWS Batch backend for Cromwell. Among the numerous changes, we have enabled Cromwell’s Call Caching feature when using AWS Batch with files in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). This allows genomics researchers to efficiently develop and run workflows […]

Building a scalable image processing pipeline for image-based transcriptomics

The below post was written by guest author Shannon Axelrod, Senior Software Engineer at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. At the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI), the science team’s goal is to support the science and technology that will make it possible to cure, prevent, or manage all diseases by the end of this century. In particular, the organization […]
