NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The University of Washington has hired
OpenHelix to provide training programs for its SeattleSNPs tool and for its Genome Variation Server, the University said today.
Both genomic resources are free and web-based.
SeattleSNPs is used to identify and genotype the associations between SNPs and genes and pathways linked to human inflammatory responses.
The GVS is a repository of dbSNP and HapMap databases that allows users to upload their own data for analysis and visualization.
The program will offer online training, tutorials, exercises, and presentation materials, the University said.
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
