The TranSMART Foundation has launched a new version of the open source knowledge management platform.

The results of Boston Children's Hospital's Children's Leadership Award for the Reliable Interpretation and appropriate Transmission of Your genomic information, or CLARITY, contest suggest that the community largely agrees on the best informatics approaches for clinical genomic

Cautious optimism seems to be the prevailing mood among some of the bioinformatics vendors that have signed up to develop analysis tools for Illumina’s BaseSpace applications store.

Genomatix said this week that its software has been selected to analyze next-generation sequence data for the Blueprint of Hematopoietic Epigenomes consortium, an EU-funded project focused on research into blood-based diseases like leukemia.
