Opening the spigot at XSEDE

XSEDE team speeds evaluations of transcriptome reconstruction, which will aid our understanding of cellular changes. Scientists hope to establish best practices that will help other researchers find clues to how cells change their behavior in response to disease processes …. “It’s crucial to determine the important factors that affect transcriptome reconstruction,” says Noushin Ghaffari of Read more about Opening the spigot at XSEDE[…]
