Empowering ELIXIR PT capabilities to deploy and operate Local EGA instances

The European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) is designed to be a repository for all types of sequence and genotype experiments, including case-control, population, and family studies. The EGA will serve as a permanent archive that will archive several levels of data including the raw data (which could, for example, be re-analysed in the future by other algorithms) as well as the genotype calls provided by the submitters. In spite of EGA accepting data from all Europe, due to regulations over data and other constraints, it is desirable that ELIXIR Nodes deploy and operate Local EGA instances.

The aim of this project is then to empower ELIXIR PT Node, and not only, with required expertise to deploy and operate Local EGA instances and related data processing procedures and pipelines. We will leverage ELIXIR PT efforts on designing and deploying pipelines for genomic data processing and ELIXIR ES expertise on Local EGA deployment and on the operation and use of HPC infrastructures.
