Virtual Environement for Research Data and Analysis (VERDA)
The VERDA project implements the central information infrastructure for the data-driven and computational research of the TRR356. VERDA will provide active support through a Data Steward, and an extensive training and support program. OpenStack-based computing resources at Tübingen and Munich are made available through a convenient science gateway including access to Jupyter notebooks, workflows, and a wealth of useful tools.
VERDA will thus enable researchers with and without IT experience to conduct large-scale bioinformatics and data science analyses, and to efficiently capture, handle, share, annotate and publish their research data targeting all dimensions of diversity in plant-microbe interactions.
