How to analyse genomics data without bioinformatics skills using a genome browser

The advent and refinement of visualisation tools has allowed scientists of all programming levels to unearth the valuable insights that lie in these complex file types, which can consist of thousands to billions of data points. One such tool is the Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV), a high-performance visualisation tool for the interactive exploration of large genomic files.

Standardising cloud-native bioinformatics pipelines: nf-core meets CloudOS

The democratisation of Next Generation Sequencing technologies has made omics data more available than ever before. Bioinformaticians are now confronted with tackling the NGS data deluge in order to deliver actionable insights. Transforming raw data into impactful insights requires bioinformaticians to process omics data with bioinformatics pipelines. To date, however, no validated standards have been widely established by the bioinformatics community.
