The platform is based on the Galaxy service and offers researchers access to datasets relevant to the ongoing investigations on the COVID-19.
This initiative benefits from the services provided by the so-called “COVID-19 Virtual Organisation”, supported by the EGI Federated Cloud.
Isabel Campos, coordinator of the EOSC-Synergy project, says: “We are extremely happy to have set up this platform so quickly. European cooperation and know-how in distributed computing have never been more relevant in these challenging times. I am thankful to the members of the EOSC-Synergy project and the EGI Federation, and particularly to the EGI Foundation team for the swift and smooth support received to set up the user community support tools.”
A formal service level agreement is now in place to support this goal, with the following EGI cloud providers involved: CESGA, CESNET, IFCA-LCG2, IISAS, NCG-INGRID-PT.
