The PhenoMeNal e-infrastructure supports data processing and analysis workflows for large datasets generated in metabolomics research. The computational services provided within PhenoMeNal enable researchers to build, share and run reproducible data processing workflows in cloud environments. They aim to improve the understanding of the causes and mechanisms underlying health and disease, and to render the generated data and metadata more traceable as demanded by reproducible research. PhenoMeNal’s services can enhance a wide range of metabolomics applications in biological, agricultural and environmental sciences.
PhenoMeNal has worked closely with the EGI Federated Cloud to harness EGI’s strategy for provision of a secure and reliable infrastructure. PhenoMeNal VREs are now successfully deployed on EGI Federated Cloud resources (Cloud provider IN2P3-IRES). This achievement was a joint effort between the two consortia and covered the extension of the PhenoMeNal deployment engine (KubeNow) to include OpenStack Virtual Organization Management System (VOMS) authentication methods. The work was carried out on EGI cloud resources provided by IN2P3-IRES within the ELIXIR-FR virtual organisation. Technical details can be found in the PhenoMeNal wiki.
