The offers an opportunity to students, researchers and citizen scientists an opportunity to work independently on a research project using bioinformatics with mentor support. The program started about a year ago and we had the chance to see many projects developed by research fellows during…


TRKIR — Detailed Phenotypic Data on Animal Models of Human Disease

A tremendous amount of data is being collected from cell lines, animal models and patients to understand disease and be able to prevent or treat it. A major part of this discovery has relied on accurate data that can…


Life sciences are going through a major transformation: the growing volume, velocity and variability of collected data are demanding an ever increasing level of data management, wrangling and analysis skills. The data itself keeps getting more detailed, complex and … interesting! The scale of typical experiments went from 3 replicates…


DADA2 pipeline with Phyloseq on T-BioInfo and in R Studio

The microbiome has been fascinating to many researchers — it is a new way of thinking about microorganisms that populate almost every area of our body, colonizing our skin, helping maintain the gut function and even influencing how we feel. To study microbial community (microbiota) composition as it exists in…


Omics Logic Transcriptomics Program

is an online training program for students, researchers and clinicians. It is designed to introduce participants to the various aspects of RNA-seq data analysis in application to basic research, biotechnology and biomedical projects and see how RNA-seq is used for real world biomedical applications.


Analysis of Publicly Available Viral Genomes from the Current SARS-COV-2 Outbreak

The current pandemic has brought attention to the role bioinformatics plays in modern research. Only about a couple of decades ago, during the SARS epidemic in 2003–2004, it was a story most of us heard about from the experts…


The corona family of viruses has been a cause of mild “common cold” symptoms for many years. The recent outbreak has been hypothesized before, but was never labeled as an imminent threat it poses to millions of people today, wreaking havoc across the globe.

Novel corona virus strain (COV-SARS-2)

Recent advances in bioinformatics are allowing…


I saw the recently posted genomes of COVID-19, SARS and MERS on NCBI

and decided to run a multiple sequence alignment to find their relationships. The resulting phylogenetic tree I got looked like this:
