The CloudMet2017 summer school organised by CRS4 in Sardinia, brought  together participants and trainers from eight different countries. The event proved to be an opportunity for participants to learn a lot about metabolomics data analysis in the cloud, and the PhenoMeNal consoritum  was also glad to see that our infrastructure(s) were chugging along while 30+…
Date: Tuesday Oct 24, 2017, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM BST Abstract: In this webinar, Pablo Moreno (EMBL-EBI), will explain the main components of PhenoMeNal and how the user interacts with them. We will demonstrate how to register, access existing tools and workflows, create a new PhenoMeNal cloud research Environment (CRE) on Amazon, and execute a workflow on a…
The recent application for establishing Metabolomics as a use case for ELIXIR has recently been approved by the Heads of Nodes of ELIXIR. Together with Proteomics and Galaxy, Metabolomics will be added to the portfolio of ELIXIR use cases, or "communities" as this will be called in the work programme of ELIXIR 2019-2023. For details…
Date: Wednesday 25 October 2017, 16:00 -  17:00 (Europe/London) Abstract: PhenoMeNal aims to bridge the gap between cloud computing and metabolomics researchers by providing the ability to create Cloud Research Environments (CRE) for metabolomics data analysis. A PhenoMeNal CRE is a small cluster of computers with popular metabolomics data analysis tools already installed. These tools are ready to be run and are…
  Date: 30th October - 2nd November 2017; Venue: European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), Cambridge,  CB10 1SD, United Kingdom The participants will learn about metabolomics data analysis using publicly available softwares and tools. The training course includes hand-on tutorials on data submissions and using the PhenoMeNal compute platform for a workflow based approach to data analysis. For registration and details click here.
The PhenoMeNal project in collaboration with the Universities of Cagliari, Jena and Cambridge are organizing the “Scientific School on Cloud-based Metabolomics Data Analysis and Collaboration” , to be held in CRS4’s research campus in [Pula, Sardinia, Italy] on September 11th-15th, 2017.  The School will offer participants an opportunity to learn about current topics in metabolomics, with…
The PhenoMeNal consortium in collaboration with  RMIT University, University of Melbourne, National Institute of Genetics and Friedrich-Schiller-University, hosted a workshop on Data Sharing, Standardisation and Workflow for reproducible analysis in Metabolomics at the Metabolomics 2017 Brisbane, Australia. The workshop was focussed on metabolomics data sharing standards and computational workflows for metabolomics data analysis within the PhenoMeNal e-infrastructure.
PhenoMeNal will host its joint SAB-Stakeholder-Annual Consortium meeting at EMBL-EBI, UK on 15-16th June 2017. The two-day event will be attended by the scientific advisors, stakeholders and members of the the consortium and will include lighting talks on reuse of health data, data privacy and clinical metabolomics by the expert panel and demonstrations by the PhenoMeNal partners…
The PhenoMeNal project, ELIXIR-NL and ELIXIR-DE organised a strategic workshop on the “Future of Metabolomics in ELIXIR” on 25th April in Frankfurt, Germany. The one-day workshop discussed the metabolomics resources and services available through some of the ELIXIR nodes and developed a number of ELIXIR use cases for metabolomics and their alignments with the ELIXIR platforms.…
Data management and analysis is often cumbersome and requires investment of lot of time by researchers. Cloud computing has opened up new avenues and offers solutions for these challenges. Ola Spjuth,  Associate Professor at Uppsala University, in his presentation "The case for cloud computing in Life Sciences" talks about the ongoing work in his laboratory…
