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

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
