Seven Bridges Cancer Genomics Cloud developed by Velsera

Seven Bridges


The Seven Bridges Cancer Genomics Cloud developed by Velsera (SB-CGC), 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 850 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 workflow editor to wrap and edit tools in Common Workflow Language. Users can then continue their analyses in the cloud using JupyterLab or RStudio (Galaxy and SAS are coming soon!) 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.
