EurekAlert: New Metascape platform enables biologists to unlock big-data insights

EurekAlert: New Metascape platform enables biologists to unlock big-data insights . “… scientists from Sanford Burnham Prebys, the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation (GNF) and the University of California, San Diego have revealed an open-access, web-based portal that integrates more than 40 advanced bioinformatics data sources to allow non-technical users to generate insights in one click. Called Metascape, this tool removes data analysis barriers–allowing researchers to spend more time on important biological questions and less time building and troubleshooting a data analysis workflow.”
