Cloud-based data analysis in metabolomics (PhenomeNal)
Metabolomics, like almost any omics area, is characterised by the need to analyse increasingly large datasets. Workflows for such analyses are often composed of a plethora of different tools of varying provenance, which a bioinformatician needs to install, maintain, resolve dependencies and ultimately wire together and use. In the PhenoMeNal (Phenome and Metabolome aNalysis) e-infrastructure, we are providing a cloud-based workflow system which can be deployed on public and private cloud and releaves the user from most the above mentioned steps. Within de.NBI, we are providing advice and assistance to use and adapt PhenoMeNal to your needs. This Service is offered by the Cheminformatics and Computational Metabolomics working group at Friedrich Schiller University Jena.
