The Bioinformatics and Computational Biosciences Branch creates applications prepared by NIAID researchers and collaborators to share with the broader research community.
Examples of web applications include the following:
PaVE: Papillomavirus Episteme
PaVE is a bioinformatics resource for papillomavirus researchers. PaVE includes over 420 complete genomic sequences from the Papillomaviridae and will soon feature tools for the comparative analysis of viral isolates. PaVE includes unique visualization and search tools for sequence information specific to the Papillomaviridae.
The following are examples of downloadable desktop applications:
SPICE: Simplified Presentation of Incredibly Complex Evaluations
The SPICE application is used by immunologists for data mining and visualization of multicolor flow cytometry data. However, the application has a broader utility: researchers may use SPICE to analyze any multivariate data set that has a series of nominal measurements and a single continuous measurement.
