2016 Final Update

2016 was a great year for us. New sequencers and great research, HiSeq 4000, PacBio Sequel, and MinION R9. New website. 365 projects added to our LIMS this year (One a day).  Over $1.6M in new grant funding. TxGen is overseeing four genomic seed grant programs.

Jobs Page Update

Our Bioinformatics jobs page has has been totally revamped by Dr. Marcel Brun. We have added the ability to search roles, skills, and by company. This will greatly aid those searching our page. 3265 jobs added to date, over 66 pages of information.

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[…]
