This lesson provides a short overview of the main features of the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) Portal, a web interface that facilitates open science for the neuroscience community by simplifying global access to and sharing of datasets and tools. The Portal internalizes the typical cycle of a research project, beginning with data acquisition, followed by data processing with published tools, and ultimately the publication of results with a link to the original dataset.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 14:03

This talk presents an overview of CBRAIN, a web-based platform that allows neuroscientists to perform computationally intensive data analyses by connecting them to high-performance computing facilities across Canada and around the world.

Speaker: : Shawn Brown

In this talk the speakers will give a brief introduction of the Fenix Infrastructure and Service Offering, before focusing on Data Safety. The speaker will take the participants through the ETHZ-CSCS offering for EBRAINS and all the HBP Communities highlighting the Infrastructure role in a service implementation in respect of Security. Particular attention will be on showing what tools ETHZ-CSCS provides to a Portal/Service provider such as EBRAINS, MIP/HIP, TVB, NRP amongst others. Finally there will be given a quick glimpse into the future and the role that “multi-tenancy” will play.

Difficulty level: Intermediate
