This African led open data science platform provides an interactive environment to apply data science techniques to diverse datasets for novel health discoveries.
eLwazi provides a flexible, scalable open data science platform for the DSI-Africa consortium to find and access data, select tools and workflows and run analyses on a choice of computing environments, all through easy to use workspaces. The platform leverages Terra and Gen3 implementations of the Data Biosphere concept, incorporating Global Alliance for Genomics and Health tools and standards.
The Platform Includes 3 Main Components:
Terra or Gen3 implementations with workspaces and links to specific Cloud or local computing environments. Currently Terra provides access to Google Cloud Platform and Gen3 to Amazon Web Services.FIND OUT MORE
