Tools and Workflows

The role of this workgroup is to provide assistance to research hubs and individuals in order to utilize computational tools for Analysis 
aligned with DS-I Africa, with an emphasis on cloud based platforms including Terra, Gen3 and Dockstore. It consists of two projects, namely the Datascience Toolsuite and Tools Development project, with a focus on interactive analysis, notebooks and Machine Learning/AI; and the Workflows project, that aims at providing support for analytical pipelines that utilize Dockstore as a workflow repository, with a focus on efficient batch analysis on Terra and other computational platforms. The Tools and Workflows Workgroup is Chaired by Ben Vizzier of the University of California, Santa Cruz, and co-chaired by Shakuntala Biachoo of the University of Mauritius.
