Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for Bioinformatics

This repository shows how to use โ˜๏ธGoogle Cloud Platform public cloud services to scale bioinformatics data analysis tasks using cloud best practices for GCP. This use cases featured as exampled are called any and all of the following: genomic-scale data workflows, pipelines, analysis or batch jobs.

This content is intended for researchers - in particular, this guide is for those who are NEW to working with GCP. You have a number of options on how to use the materials provided in this course. A summary is shown below left.

Welcome to GCP for Bioinformatics

Why would I choose to use a public cloud vendor for bioinformatics?

โญ๏ธ SAVE MONEY run (and pay for) scalable analysis jobs only when you need to run them
โญ๏ธ SAVE TIME use vendor-managed infrastructure & best-practice patterns for fast repeatable research
