  • BioBuilds 2014.11 Open Source Distribution Released by Lab7

    As some of you know, at Lab7 we maintain a collection of pre-built binaries for many popular bioinformatics tools. Today, we posted the second BioBuilds release (BioBuilds-2014.11), available on biobuilds.org. This release includes many more tools than the last and also adds support for Red Hat and Ubuntu optimized for POWER8, in addition to RHEL/Centos, Debian/Ubuntu, and OS X on x86.

    Sharing the binaries is one way that we can give back to the community (and maybe we've patched some Makefiles along the way... ). We really appreciate all the work that's gone into these tools and want to make sure Open Source tools remain readily accessible as bioinformatics expands beyond research environments and into applied markets.

    If you're tired of maintaining your own builds or work in a production/clinical environment where a single source for tools helps with compliance, please check out BioBuilds.

    We're happy to add more tools to the package, licenses permitting. Email us directly ([email protected]) or respond to this thread with requests and comments.

    Also, if you happen to be at Supercomputing 2014 this week, stop by the IBM or Dell booths if you'd like to learn more about BioBuilds.

    Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
    by seqadmin


    Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

    Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
    by seqadmin


    Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
