We blog about genomics. We also make a platform for open-source analysis of next generation data in the cloud. Hello.

The Data Browser has a new look!

Representing more than 11,000 patients, each analyzed across multiple molecular dimensions, The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) represents an incredibly rich data resource. However, navigating this landscape to find exactly the data that is most interesting can be challenging – particularly when information is spread across multiple sources. To address this …
