Extending KNIME for next-generation sequencing data analysis.
SUMMARY: KNIME (Konstanz Information Miner) is a user-friendly and comprehensive open-source data integration, processing, analysis and exploration platform. We present here new functionality and workflows that open the door to performing next-generation sequencing analysis using the KNIME framework. AVAILABILITY: All sources and compiled code are available via the KNIME update mechanism. Example workflows and descriptions are available through http://tech.knime.org/community/next-generation-sequencing. CONTACT: firstname.lastname@example.org SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
SciCrunch is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to scicrunch, however this is not currently a free service.
