In need of a resource that could help researchers properly sift through human genomic datasets at scale and find the new insights hidden there, scientists at the Center for Computational Biology (CCB) at the Flatiron Institute created HumanBase, an interactive software platform that allows biologists to access results of tens of thousands of experiments in one place and make connections in a systematic way that springboard human biological discovery.
It develops, deploys and maintains computational infrastructure — from supercomputers to desktop PCs — dedicated solely to the use of Flatiron researchers.
For distinguished scientists with a particular interest in diversity and inclusion
Scholars may engage in a variety of activities, such as working on scientific projects, starting new collaborations, mentoring junior scientists, and organizing or participating in workshops and career development events.
A major effort of the Flatiron Institute is the development and support of high-quality, open-source software for research.
In early development, cells commit to a single germ fate despite receiving multiple, conflicting inductive cues. Here, we examine how…Proceedings of the National Academy of Science of the USA
