Featured Services

  • BRAEMBL Web Services (Rest)

    BRAEMBL provides programmatic access to various data resources and analysis tools via Web Services technologies.

    Our services let scientists share data, perform complex queries and analyse the results in different ways. Users can work locally by downloading our data and software, or use our web services to access our resources programmatically.

    Programmatic access allows you to set-up a pipeline process in your centre and "outsource" the heavy compute component to us. This manner of "compute cloud" allows you to manage your process without requiring a large computational infrastructure.

    Here you can learn more about applying our web services in our API guide. We also have an introduction to webservices page for those new to the concept.

  • Data Submission & Integration with BRAEMBL

    As part of EMBL Australia’s mandate to further Australian interests in global research, the BRAEMBL data integration team has been established to assist Australian scientists to integrate their molecular data into the global data infrastructure and to have better access to data, tools and services developed outside Australia.
    The European Bioinformatics Institute's (EBI) data resources, in particular the data archives, face a number of problems when serving Australian users that relate to the geographical separation (especially in network distances and collaboratively challenging extreme time zones). Beyond the interest in serving the Australian scientist, the archives require Australian data to be integrated into their systems to build and maintain comprehensive and unbiased coverage in their respective areas.

EMBL Australia Bioinformatics Resource

Our mission is to enable optimal exploitation of the tools and data of bioinformatics by Australian scientists and to contribute to the greater biomolecular information infrastructure in a manner that showcases Australian science.

The EMBL Australia Bioinformatics Resource ('BRAEMBL') incorporates the National Computational Infrastructure Specialised Facility in Bioinformatics (NCI-SFB), EBI Mirror and Data Integration services.


2015 news update

From 2015, through an agreement with EMBL Australia, this Resource has been relocated to the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative (VLSCI) which is funded by the Victorian Government and contributing institutions and hosted by the University of Melbourne. This petascale facility delivers expertise and systems for life sciences computing. This re-location is focussing the next phase of the development of the Resource on addressing the increasing demand for training and skills development in bioinformatics while concurrently continuing to develop tools and resources for the Australian research community and our international collaborators. VLSCI and UQ have most recently successfully rolled out the NeCTAR-funded Genomics Virtual Laboratory (GVL) and much of the training to be delivered will be offered on this platform.

This new agreement involves a network of service providers at nodes in Queensland (QCIF), New South Wales, (The University of Sydney Schools of Biological Sciences and Medicine), Western Australia (Centre of Excellence in Plant Biology), Adelaide, (University of Adelaide, Flinders University and SAHMRI) and Tasmania (Menzies Research Institute), making it a truly national resource.

The nodes will provide local training and researcher support, plus bioinformatics tools and platform access, modelled on the successful services delivered at VLSCI over the past five years.
