Hi all

**Apologies for cross-posting**

The Australian BioCommons would like to invite you to a discussion about infrastructure to support bioinformatics workflows in Australia. 
We want to hear about your infrastructure needs – the approaches, tools, standards and compute resources you use to develop, deploy and reuse bioinformatics workflows and the difficulties or bottlenecks you have faced.

This information will be used by the BioCommons and its partner infrastructures to coordinate national responses to your challenges and put in place fit-for-purpose solutions so that workflows can be developed, discovered, deployed and reused effectively by Australian life science researchers.

We are already working with various research groups and computational providers including NCI, Pawsey, AARNet, ARDC, QRIScloud and commercial cloud providers to better coordinate infrastructure to support bioinformatics workflows in Australia. 

We are keen to hear from all Australian researchers that use bioinformatics workflows - regardless of experience level or biological domain of focus - to help guide our work.

You can get involved by:
  • Completing a 15-minute survey before the 1st March about your current bioinformatics workflow approaches, tools, standards, compute resources and computational challenges,
  • Joining us for an online video conference on Thursday 22nd March 12:00 - 1:30 pm AEST where we will discuss the results of the survey, and explore ways that national coordination / consolidation could help to address the challenges (RSVP to or complete the survey to be invited), and
  • Joining our Bioinformatics Workflows Google Group to keep up to date on future events and activities
Please feel free to distribute as widely as possible to your colleagues!
