Enabling Students and Faculty to Conduct Research in the Age of Big Data
OmicsLogic is a program that embeds data-driven concepts into biological projects, spanning the student learning journey from observer to participant in research. This journey begins with identifying an interesting biological research problem or question that can be answered with data, continues with the collection and organization of data, and concludes with students interpreting and drawing conclusions about the data.
Learn both the theoretical and practical aspects of Bioinformatics
What is Omics Logic?
A Growing Community of Students, Experts and Mentors
Our community leverages publicly available data, online tools for big data analysis and a network of mentors to help students learn bioinformatics, apply their skills to meaningful research projects and work with mentors on turning their projects into publications or research posters. The programs we offer provide training, access to high quality tutorials and tools anyone can learn to use independently. The program is offered at university, high school or community college levels as well as directly to citizen scientists around the world.
Opportunities to leverage what you know, discover a lot more and make a difference.
While learning biotechnology, biochemistry and immunology (among other things) might be your passion, in every one of these domains analysis of experiments and clinical data is of a growing importance. While many prefer to rely on external experts to analyze their data, the understanding of basic principles behind such analysis is critical to be able to extract meaningful and reliable information that is critical for discovery. Research in life sciences is seeing an exponential growth in data volume, complexity and variability, placing bioinformatics, or data science for biological data, central to the learning path of anyone in this field.
T-BioInfo is a powerful big-data analytics platform designed for biologists and clinicians that have to deal with large multi-omics datasets. This user-friendly solution simplifies analysis and allows anyone to handle their own analysis without relying on technical support to set up computational environments and pipelines for processing. This user-friendly solution comes with extensive training to prepare anyone for advanced computational analysis, visualization and annotation. To learn more or try the T-BioInfo platform, register for a free demo account and connect with one of our representatives: https://server.t-bio.info/
What does the platform offer?
The T-BioInfo platform offers a single interface to access various processing capabilities like phylogenetic tree reconstruction, multiple sequence alignment, variant calling from NGS genomic data, transcriptomic analysis of RNA-seq data, 3D structural analysis, and screening of small molecules as well as specialized pipelines for oncology, virology, neuroscience, and agrobiological applications.
Big Data Processing
Various types of Omics data can be analyzed and integrated on the T-BioInfo platform. Genomic, Transcriptomics, Epigenomics and Metagenomic data can be analyzed and visualized. This is done through a pipeline builder that can also be used as an educational tool to understand the logic behind each step. Each method is explained with user-friendly inputs and a variety of visual and table outputs.
Multi-omics integration means we can combine molecular signatures from various omics as descriptors. The T-BioInfo platform offers a streamlined workflow for integration with technical ease of use. In order to find meaningful associations in heterogeneous multi-omics datasets, a mix of supervised and unsupervised multi-omics integration approaches are available like SNF tools, iCluster Plus and BiClustering.
Large datasets are useful in many more ways than the standard statistical analysis can show. Due to the complex patterns in omics data, sensitive methods for biomarker discovery, target identification, and pattern analysis are a major part of meaningful analysis. The T-BioInfo platform makes machine learning easy to use with datasets processed on the platform or provided by the user. These include classification, regression, clustering
