Terra is a product of the Broad Institute of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Harvard Data Sciences Platform, and Verily Life Sciences.
Terra is a cloud-native platform for biomedical researchers to access data, run analysis tools, and collaborate. The technical components include development of a controlled access AMP PD Knowledge Platform with considerations for data storage and management, standardized pipeline analyses for generation of processed datasets, and cloud collaborative project management. The Platform provides mechanisms for researchers to build, use and share packaged analytical methods and query tools, including Docker-based pipelines (e.g. for variant calling) and Jupyter notebooks (e.g. for visualization).
