  2. Talk - Jaime Pilusky "bioimg"

    • Bioimg platform for annotating storing and sharing BioImgaging Data
    • 80 microscopes across campus, 1300 users, 20 k new files a day
    • Bimg1, bimg2… bimgn (5) servers with mirrored storage
    • Automatic data transfer every 2 hours
    • Access-point to access servers via web interface
    • SAMBA access for analysis - don’t need to upload/download data
    • Mandatory annotation of data with Project name etc. Auto detect un-annotated data
    • Can share externally by email
    • Copy data to another server outside firewall
    • Unique hash in url to access data
    • Don’t do metadata extraction on upload. Doesn’t contain exp metadata - can parse files for acquisition metadata later if needed.
    • Would like to add OMERO interface
    • Looking at eduGAIN for login
    • Josh: script that does the upload & e-mail could also notify OMERO / import etc
    • But, annotations and other DB data not shared
    • Chris: Options 1) Don’t copy annotations 2) try to copy in both directions 3) display only
    • Josh: Federated, use web apis to combine data from different resources
    • Chris: tricky with authentication & authorisation.
    • Jason: data transfer workflow
    • Jaime: put data in “your” folder on microscope. Auto uploaded
    • Then, go to web-ui, browse by experiment type, date etc.
    • All data is saved, even if experiment didn’t work etc.
    • Thumbnails generated via BioFormats using Perl script
    • Generate 1 thumbnail per ‘experiment’ which may be many images
