Does your lab have a tool that is focused on a particular data type? Help us highlight your tool in the upcoming Choosing Genomics Tools course.

Write 5 - 10 sentences - including any relevant links that tell:

  1. What kind of data is used by your tool (at what point in the processing of the data) and for what purpose (pre-processing, normalization, visualization, etc.)

  2. Where would one go to get started with your tool - link to a tutorial

We will incorporate your tool in the Choosing Genomics Tools course and give you credit for your contribution. Email with your blurb.
