Seven Bridges Cancer Genomics Cloud

(SB-CGC)
Seven Bridges

Overview

The Cancer Genomics Cloud, powered by Seven Bridges, is a cloud-based platform for cancer research funded by the NCI. It co-localizes in a single environment:

  • Access to data
  • Tools for data analysis
  • The computational power for large-scale analyses¬†

Users can access many large NCI datasets across multiple fields, including genomics, proteomics, and data from multiple species, as well as bring in their own data quickly and easily. SB-CGC provides a curated library of over 450 tools and workflows that have been optimized for the cloud, covering many major areas of data analysis. Users can bring in their own pipelines or edit our existing tools by using our simple development kit (Rabix Composer) to wrap and edit tools in Common Workflow Language. Users can then continue their analyses in the cloud using Jupyter notebooks or RStudio packages. The entire platform is built with both security and collaboration in mind, so users can work with other researchers around the world while knowing their data are safely controlled.
