Genetics and Genomics Analysis Platform (GenAP)
The Genetics and Genomics Analysis Platform (GenAP) is a computing infrastructure and software environment for life science researchers available since 2015. GenAP aims at facilitating the work of researchers and students by offering out of the box Web applications running on an infrastructure currently leveraging Compute Canada Cloud and HPC resources.
The GenAP project was initially funded by grants from CANARIE and Génome Québec from 2013 to 2018 and included three major components:
The pipelines were used for thousands of compute jobs during this period, using CVMFS for the distribution of their code and reference files throughout all Compute Canada infrastructures. The portal was accessed by >200 active users, >150 Datahubs were created (>25 TB of data shared) and >10k jobs were run through Galaxy.
