  • Avalanche Workbench - A tool for biologists

    Avalanche Workbench is a visual data analysis & DNA sequence data mining tool for BIOLOGISTS.

    It offers a visual graphic interface through which you can search (eSearch, eLink, eSummary, eFetch, Blast) biology databases such as NCBI or get visual access to sequence processing tools/servers.

    The tool consists of smaller bits (called 'tasks') that can be serialized to form a quite complex pipeline.

    For example, with a couple of clicks, you can perform a NCBI search for 'Escherichia coli' in the taxonomy database. In minutes the program will download in your computer all genomes related to this organism.

    All this is VISUAL (and freeware). No need to program any script for this.

    The following 'tasks' will be available by the end of the week:
    • eSearch
    • eLink
    • eSummary
    • eFetch Taxonmy
    • eFetch Protein
    • eFetch Nucleotide

    Blast is next of the list (to be released somewhere in the middle of June).

    Constructive feedback is highly appreciated !!!!

    A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
    by seqadmin

    ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

    Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
    by seqadmin
    Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

    The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
