The bioinformatics core supports the following state of the art pipelines and the galaxy server that offers a unified user interface to executing them.
For questions, discussions and bioinformatics expertise the core sponsors a bioinformatics list server and a monthly seminar open to all members of the University Of Massachusetts and the researches of the greater Boston area.
If you experience any problem or error please report it by filling up a HEAT ticket form here.
We host a monthly seminar on bioinformatics wHere members of the community present analysis or data they plan to analyze with the goal of an open and lively discussion on best informatics approaches. If you want to be added to the informatics seminar announcements please email us here.
The bioinformatics core in conjunction with the Weng and Garber labs also hosts an online forum to discuss data analysis topics. If you are interested in participating in these discussions you subscribe at forum’s online page.
The informatics core works closely with the scientific computing group to ensure access to the most used applications. For a for an updated list and our documentation page for detailed documentation on each pipeline see http://wiki.umassmed.edu/rc/wiki/index.php/Software.
To ensure that those who are not computational inclined can also benefit from the software and pipelines available through the core or third parties we partner with the GenomeSpace project which provides a global, interconnectivity layer across the most commonly used genomic tools.
If you experience any problem or error while running our core pipelines or using our Galaxy server please report it by filling up a HEAT ticket form here.
Our internal Galaxy and GenePattern servers are available to run our custom pipelines.
