Default Welcome to the Open Genomics Engine Discussion Forum

Hi all,

I'm excited to announce that SEQanswers will act as the official discussion host for the Open Genomics Engine project. See the official announcement below:

The Open Genomics Engine (OpenGE) was developed at Virginia Bioinformatics Institute and Virginia Tech and funded by the NVIDIA Foundation. OpenGE is designed for analyzing and interpreting high-throughput sequencing data. It is freely available to the research community to enable other investigators to build upon the tools and collaboratively advance the fields of genomics and cancer biology.

David Mittelman, associate professor at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute and the Department of Biological Sciences at Virginia Tech, will be the project leader for OpenGE. His laboratory will maintain the official OpenGE distribution, as well as ongoing research and development for the project. The bioinformatics lead will be Gareth Highnam and the software development lead will be Lee Baker, both from VBI. Contact Dr. Mittelman and his team to learn more about the effort, contribute, or provide feedback on the project.

The official OpenGE discussion community is hosted by Eric Olivares at SEQanswers. SEQanswers is the largest online genomics community and is a free and open knowledge-sharing resource for interdisciplinary discussion covering experimental and computational aspects of sequencing and sequencing analysis. SEQanswers has more than 4,000 active members, including developers of many popular genome analysis tools.

OpenGE is the first project to be funded under Compute the Cure, an initiative of the NVIDIA Foundation to help accelerate cancer researcher in the search for a cure.
As always, feedback and input are welcome.
