Pipelines and APIs¶
ISB-CGC provides programmatic access to cancer data (both open and controlled-access) and metadata stored on the Google Cloud Platform through a combination of ISB-CGC APIs and Google APIs. Access to ISB-CGC metadata and user-data such as patient cohort definitions is provided through the ISB-CGC API. For more details on Google Cloud APIs, please read the extensive in-depth Google Cloud APIs documentation.
We have compiled a collection of tutorials and sample workflows designed to introduce users to running workflows (CWL, Nextflow, Snakemake, WDL, and GeneFlow) on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). ISB-CGC does not make the choice for users but instead enables as many workflow technologies as possible through documentation, support, and where necessary, infrastructure.
