Bioinformatics tools and support for virology research

The National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS) is a national NSF-funded center providing bioinformatics support to biologists of all sorts. This includes 1) access to large memory clusters, 2) curated sets of installed bioinformatics tools, 3) direct advice and training on genomic analysis, to include genomics, transcriptomic, metagenomics, population genomics, etc.

With few exceptions, these are the same tool sets that virologists use. With the advent of COVID-19, NCGAS is making these tools more generally available, and we are now supporting viral research of all types using our resources.

Clusters available include IU Carbonate, PSC Bridges and IU Jetstream Cloud. Request allocations on either of these clusters by sending email to help@ncgas.org.

Check out our site, ncgas.org, for more information.

See a list of our offered software at NCGAS supported software. Additional software can be requested here.
