The vibrant city of Boston recently hosted the highly anticipated BIO-IT World Conference. The BIO-IT is a premier gathering of industry professionals and innovators at the forefront of bioinformatics and computational biology. At our booth (we were #1 nevertheless!) we showcased OmicsBox, our user-friendly bioinformatics solution that simplifies data analysis and interpretation. Through live demonstrations, we showed how OmicsBox
Transcriptome reconstruction is a challenging bioinformatic problem. The development of long-read sequencing technologies has made it easier to solve this issue thanks to the possibility to have transcripts entirely contained in a read. In addition, different algorithms have emerged to generate transcriptomes from long-read datasets, such as FLAIR and StringTie2. Both tools can be used for transcriptome reconstruction with long-read data.
The study of genetic variation is fundamental in genomics research as it enables the comprehension of mutation causes and effects in the diversity of life. However, research in this field is well-developed in model organisms, while non-model organisms lack sufficient guidance for a consistent variant analysis pipeline. OmicsBox serves as a robust tool for investigating genetic variation in non-model organisms,
Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) is a valuable approach to investigating the relationship between genetic variations and phenotypic traits. However, due to many different analysis options, performing GWAS can be challenging, especially for researchers without a strong background in statistics or bioinformatics. OmicsBox’s Genetic Variation Module provides a solution by offering a user-friendly interface to powerful analysis tools. It includes a
Genetic Variation studies often involve analyzing samples from a previously studied species. For instance, it is of interest to examine genomes of various cultivars, strains, or populations of the same species. In such cases, it may be necessary to perform de novo DNA-Seq assembly to obtain the genome of the sequenced organisms, even if a reference genome is available. To
The European Union’s ITN initiative provides funding and hosting opportunities for Ph.D. students from around the world. As previously noted in one of our earlier posts, the ITN brings together some of the most prestigious institutions in the European Union to work on innovative research projects. Today we are pleased to present you the LongTREC project. Its primary objective is
Once again we are pleased to announce the latest update of OmicsBox 3.0. The whole BioBam team has worked to bring the new version of the BioBam bioinformatics solution to life. We proudly present the Genetic Variation Module as the highlight of OmicsBox 3.0. This module enables variant calling, filtering, and annotation, as well as the association of genetic variations
This January, the BioBam team had the pleasure of attending the Plant and Animal Genome Conference in San Diego, California. This international event is a MUST for everyone working in the Plant and Animal Genomics space. For us, coming back to PAG after the Covid break was a great opportunity to get re-connected to the community and catch up with
