Our current data "delivery" system
(note this changes as resources improve/upgrade, so stay tuned): 
~ Your lab or working group will have a directory at
~  You will get an email notification when your data files are ready
~  If you require anything besides the Bustard output (includes fastq file)
    you must let us know at the time you submit your sample
~  Data files will be deleted after 10 days, please
    backup/copy/archive your data in your own workspace.

Protocols and sample submission information are available on the SERVICES page.
Please click the SERVICES link in the left nav for more information.

Technical Bulletins, analytical tools, and BioInformatics information are being collected and posted on the DeepSeq_Data Page.

Publications and information about deep sequencing (MPSS) can be found on the Publications page at Illumina ( link ). We recommend starting with the review
DR Bentley, "Whole-genome re-sequencing". 

The NIH Gene Expression Omnibus accepts Next Generation or Deep Sequencing data. Information about data submission and links to the tools at GEO may be found on the GEO Page. 

Many UMass Bioinformatics resources can be found at

We are establishing a library of reference genomes and analysis tools, we welcome requests
and suggestions.
