BioBam accomplishes ISO 27001 certification

We are proud to announce that BioBam has now achieved ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification. ISO 27001 is the de-facto international security certification outlining best practices for information security management systems. This certification provides validation by a world-leading third party audit firm that BioBam meets strict security and compliance requirements, which makes BioBam one of the few bioinformatics solution providers to meet

Cloud Blast and Cloud Units: How to use resources wisely

This article describes how to run CloudBlast wisely. OmicsBox allows you to perform NCBI Blast searches using a cloud system for high-performance computing. This system runs jobs in parallel and autoscales depending on demand. To control usage we use so-called CloudUnits. These units represent computation time (cpu seconds) on the AWS infrastructure. At the moment only Blast and InterProScan consume

OmicsBox Update Version 1.4

We are happy to announce the latest version of OmicsBox 1.4, a very technical release of the OmicsBox base platform. We upgraded many internal libraries and updated to the latest version of many underlying software packages. These changes required a lot of code-refactoring and software testing to comply with all our internal security and quality standards. OmicsBox is now more

Zeroing in on genes involved in courtship song variation in Laupala crickets

OmicsBox Supported Project. Researchers: Hayden Waller, Cornell University, USA Background and Project Overview: One of the primary outcomes of speciation – the formation of new species – is the generation of pre-mating barriers that prevent or greatly reduce gene flow. Behavioral changes are perhaps the most potent in the early stages of speciation. In particular, the divergent evolution of sexual

Clustering redundant transcripts in OmicsBox with CD-HIT

De novo transcriptome assemblies are required to analyze RNA-seq data from a species for which there is no reference genome. However, with the advancement of next-generation sequencing technologies, the amount of available sequencing data is growing exponentially. Because of this, assembly algorithms often generate a large number of transcripts. Removing redundancy from such data could be crucial for reducing storage space,

Long-Reads Assembly with OmicsBox

Third-generation DNA sequencing technologies allows scientist to generate longer sequence reads, which can be used in whole-genome sequencing projects to yield better repeat resolution and more contiguous genome assemblies. However, although long-read sequencing technologies can produce genomes with long contiguity, the relatively high error rate of long reads has made it challenging to generate highly accurate final sequences. OmicsBox now
