In this final CSols’ webinar of calendar year 2016, we will review the current state of Lab Informatics, and through an understanding of what has happened in the past, peer over the horizon to examine what the future may hold.
Integrated systems for NGS data management and analysis: Open issues and available solutions
This 2016 paper by Bianchi et al., published in Frontiers in Genetics, takes a closer look at the major issues concerning next-generations sequencing (NGS) technology. The group raises five main concerns than an NGS research group should be aware of before approaching NGS technologies and briefly states positives and negatives to the most current popular tools. The group concludes "[a]lthough larger groups with enough computational members may prefer to develop and maintain their own tailored frameworks, smaller laboratories would save resources and improve their results by adopting solutions developed by third parties," including open-source and cloud-based tools.
The successive and successful relationship between environmental based laboratories and engineering companies has long been vital for both entities. Fortunately, with the adoption of modern LIMS in laboratories, in conjunction with advanced software tools available to engineering companies, these important ties have become quicker, less labor intensive, and more reliable.
