The PerMedCoE webinar series aims to present and discuss topics and best practices in the field of personalized medicine. All PerMedCoE webinars include an audience Q&A session during which attendees can ask questions and make suggestions. Please note that all webinars are recorded and available for posterior viewing.
Analysing biological datasets is nearly always a multi-step process involving many interconnected stages. Even so, the lack of transparent approaches to managing complex data analysis pipelines remains a common challenge in the life sciences. Another limiting factor is that completing such pipelines often requires in-depth knowledge of many data analysis tools and programming languages. There is, therefore, a continued need for methodologies that make complex biological data analysis pipelines easier to implement.
This webinar will present some of the main practical ways through which PerMedCoE seeks to make data analysis pipelines more manageable and accessible to researchers. In particular, the webinar will provide an overview of how the project addresses many biological use cases using a single, shared approach in which semi-automated workflows are constructed using purpose-designed building blocks.
