NEW YORK, June 1 (GenomeWeb News) - OpenHelix has received a $100,000 Small Business Innovation Research grant from the National Institutes of Health, the Seattle-based bioinformatics training company said today.


The grant will fund a study on delivering training on three of the major genome browsers currently used in genomic research -- Ensembl, NCBI Map Viewer, and UCSC Genome Browser. It will compare the effectiveness of on-site training, web seminars, and online self-run tutorials. The latter two will be available to users for free for an undisclosed limited time.
