The Open Genomics Engine (OpenGE) was developed at Virginia Bioinformatics Institute and Virginia Tech and funded by the NVIDIA Foundation. OpenGE is designed for analyzing and interpreting high-throughput sequencing data. It is freely available to the research community to enable other investigators to build upon the tools and collaboratively advance the fields of genomics and cancer biology. Download OpenGE.
David Mittelman, associate professor at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute and the Department of Biological Sciences at Virginia Tech, is the project leader for OpenGE. His laboratory will maintain the official OpenGE distribution, as well as ongoing research and development for the project. The bioinformatics lead is Gareth Highnam and the software development lead is Lee Baker, both from VBI. Contact Dr. Mittelman and his team to learn more about the effort, contribute, or provide feedback on the project.
The official OpenGE discussion community is hosted by Eric Olivares at SEQanswers. SEQanswers is the largest online genomics community and is a free and open knowledge-sharing resource for interdisciplinary discussion covering experimental and computational aspects of sequencing and sequencing analysis. SEQanswers has more than 4,000 active members, including developers of many popular genome analysis tools.
OpenGE is the first project to be funded under Compute the Cure, an initiative of the NVIDIA Foundation to help accelerate cancer researcher in the search for a cure.
