      Patterns in e-Science Applications 1h
      The hackfest brings together researchers and infrastructure service developers, in order to bring new applications to bear in scientific research. But what resources will be available to deploy these applications on in a production environment ? And what aspects of applications make for good practice, and for bad practice ? Using Design Patterns as an analogy, we investigate patterns in grid and cloud infrastructure usage, data management and application development - but also patterns in research, such as Open Science and FAIR data. Identifying patterns and anti-patterns in e-Research application development will help the participants' use cases become more robust, deployable and reliable.

      Investigating a Science Gateway for an agent-based simulation application using Repast 30m
      The Repast-infection-model is an example of an Agent-Based Simulation Infection Model implemented in the well-known Repast Simphony agent-based simulation toolkit. Agent-based simulation is a highly useful technique that allows individuals and their behaviours to be represented as they interact over time. This means that, with appropriate data, agent-based simulation can be used to study various socio-medical phenomena such as the spread of disease and infection in a population. In this section we will show how a science gateway could support the study of the spread of disease or infection in a population. As well as having direct healthcare application, it can also be used in the field of health economics to study the cost effectiveness of various infection preventive strategies.

        Education e-Library and MOOC Platform 20m
        Ethiopian Education Roadmap Project is a research project that studies about the current education system ranging from pre-school to the tertiary education. Until now, comprehensive literature reviews are conducted and hundreds of artifacts have been analyzed. The huge documents collected during this study process need to be turned into an e-library that will eventually be utilized as an African Education Library comprising of research publications, books, journals and other related materials. The e-library will be based on a clone of the Sci-GaIA Open Access Repository and each artifacts will be assigned a DOI in order to ensure citability and authorship (this through the connection with ORCID – http://orcid.org). The e-library will be also exposing an OAI-PMH endpoint and a RESTful API endpoint to allow automatic harvesting of metadata by machines. The use case also includes the installation and customization of a web based environment for MOOCs, the MOOCs platform, the Sci-Gaia Online Courses server (http://courses.sci-gaia.eu), based on OpenEdx, will be considered.

        Addis Ababa Rivers and Riversides Monitoring System 20m
        Rivers in Addis Ababa have suffered an incessant degradation for so many years that they ended up as waste disposal bins and sewers. The need to revitalize the rivers and riversides within the city has been a priority for the Addis Ababa City Government for quite some time. Currently, researchers for the fields of Environmental Protection, Biology and Urban Planning are engaged in studying the current statuses of all rivers and riversides and follow-up their conditions in the years to come. The data acquisition, analysis and reporting need to be automated using mobile and web applications. For this purpose, I have volunteered to build a mobile and web application in order to assist these researchers whose study eventually help the City Government make a proper decision concerning the rivers and riversides. During this Lagos Hackfest, I have planned to complete the web application and the backend database.

        Valorization of Open Data Archive and Documentation of the University of Ibadan Research Metadata Platform 20m
        The University of Ibadan data archive and documentation (UI-NADA) platform (http://nada.ui.edu.ng/) was established in April 2015. It signaled the piloting of a web-based open access metadata archiving and documentation of survey datasets in any Nigerian University. The UI-NADA has recorded phenomenal hits since it was launched. This phenomenal success is the motivating factor for the proposed project on the valorization of the research metadata platform. The valorization will avail end-users a more user-friendly platform with the incorporation of citation tracking through digital object identifier (DOI) and linkage to other open access repository (OAR) platforms, including social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter). It will enable more visibility and impact through the tracking, re-use and re-analysis of the research metadata.

        ACEPRD Plant Repository 20m
        The Africa Centre of Excellence in Phytomedicine and Research Development (ACEPRD), University of Jos Nigeria has noticed a paradigm shift from traditional pharmaceuticals to plant derived medication in the treatment of diseases. This paradigm shift has led to a global demand for plant-derived medicines (phytomedicines) as a primary and complementary medical tool. Within the region, traditional medicine has not been fully integrated into the modern healthcare delivery system due to the following challenges such as the safety, efficacy and stability of traditional remedies have not been fully documented, Inadequate authentication, documentation and comprehensive database of flora in the sub region, Poor academia- industry relationship and so on. ACEPRD aims to overcome these challenges by developing the field of Phytomedicine that includes the development of ACEPRD Plant Repository to aid the integration of Phytomedicine research into the healthcare delivery system in the African sub-region.

        A framework for Large NGS data analysis: Metagenomics 20m
        Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) provides a lot of platforms to sequence DNA and samples at a cheaper and faster rate. Genomic research is benefiting from this, thus making various analysis and interpretations possible. Despite the benefits of NGS, large data handling is a challenge in the area of whole genome/exome sequencing. The analysis of this large data is complex and requires high performance computing (HPC) to remote users. Here, were describe a framework that uses HPC to address large NGS data processing, incomplete data (no sample metadata information) and reduce the task complexity. We use technologies from Sci-GaIA Open Science Platform to make this analysis available for remote users. This framework proposes to ease research in metagenomics and microbial diversity analysis.

        Development of an interactive pipeline for Genome wide Association study 20m
        The need for tailoring healthcare and treatment therapies to individual patients based on their genetic-makeup and other biological features is becoming more and more crucial in today’s clinical practice. Genome Wide Association Study (GWAS) has been applied extensively to uncover several variations and genes in our DNA that are related to different diseases, traits and clinical symptoms. However, a typical GWAS analysis requires the use of numerous complex commands, codes and analysis from different languages. This makes research projects complex and time consuming for researchers. GWAS also requires the use of large computing and storage resources to perform state of art data analysis, which might not be available for most developing country researchers. We aim to develop an e-infrastructure web application that will provide state-of-the art GWAS analysis to local researchers. Back-end Web technologies to be used include JSP for business logic, JAX-RS for programmatic access to web application, nextflow, a workflow language, Liferay, FutureGateway, gLibrary etc. This solution will make GWAS analysis easier to perform, by requiring limited understanding of the computational needs and from researchers. This will also allow researchers focus mainly on research problem and give better and intuitive biological interpretation to the results.

We have implemented our Computer Aided Drug Design (CADD) protocols and obtained published and some unpublished results for Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) such as ascariasis, Ebola virus disease, malaria, sickle cell disease and Shiga Toxin producing Escherichia coli (STEC) etc. We intend to design and develop a Drug Design, Discovery, Development Platform and Repository (D4PR). D4PR will be a web-based platform containing an integrated set of tools, applications, data repositories etc., which can be accessed via D4PR portal. We intend implementing the front-end of the proposed platform with HTML, CSS and JavaScript while incorporating Bootstrap technology. The back-end will be implemented using PHP scripting language, while integrating standard technologies such as FutureGateway, Open Access Repository, SAML and LDAP for authentication and authorization. The developed application will be hosted on an online web server ported to Africa Grid Science Gateway (AGSG) cloud computing e-infrastructure. Our platform will help to address the disease burdens, especially from NTDs, in Nigeria and Africa in general.

        MIPAR extension 20m
        Medical images are used for clinical diagnosis, treatment and patient management. There are many methods of acquiring medical images and each technique has its own application area, strengths and weaknesses. The recent advancements in medical image analysis has given birth to image guided therapy, virtual reality and augmented reality, all these among other innovations have greatly improved health delivery, improved quality of life and also saved lives. The high cost of image acquisitions and limited availability of medical image analysts plus the need to share expertise amongst clinical experts have led to the development of Medical Image Processor and Repository (MIPAR). MIPAR is a web based tool which allows users to donate, download or process images. However, MIPAR does not have any module for statistical analysis. The aim of this project is to extend MIPAR to include statistical analysis. It is our hope that the proposed statistical features of MIPAR will allow users to get useful information from their data.
