GIO published; gets targeted tools

Our customised version of Galaxy, GIO, with added support for proteomics and PIT (proteomics informed by trancriptomics) workflows recently made it into Molecular and Cellular Proteomics. We’ve subsequently added a bunch of tools for designing targeted proteomics experiments- head over to GIO to try them out and check out the associated workflow and tutorial.


Funded PhD studentship available

In collaboration with biomedical colleagues from the Blizard Institute, we have a fully funded Life Sciences Institute (LSI) studentship available, for October 2014 start. The project is in the area of data integration using the Galaxy platform. For more information, check out the link below.

Project details at QMUL web site

Deadline for applications is 31 January 2014.
