In this 2016 paper published in BMC Bioinformatics, Backman and Girke discuss the R/Bioconductor package systemPipeR. Recognizing that the analysis of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data remains a significant challange, the authors turned to the R programming language and the Bioconductor environment to make workflows that were "time-efficient and reproducible." After giving some background and then discussing the development and implementation, they conclude that systemPipeR helps researchers "reduce the complexity and time required to translate NGS data into interpretable research results, while a built-in reporting feature improves reproducibility."
The digital revolution is rapidly changing the landscape for scientific laboratories. Digital technologies like the internet of things (IoT) and cloud storage are allowing companies to generate and store more data than ever before. Yet, with the arrival of big data, the volume and complexity of data in modern laboratories can make managing this critical asset extremely challenging. Towards this end, Laboratory information management systems (LIMS) have become an invaluable tool in modern scientific laboratories for effective data management.
In the last few years, Next Generation Sequencing instruments and bioinformatics software have undergone tremendous progress. However, to get the most out of those revolutionary advances, NGS labs need one more tool. A LIMS automates lab work to maximize efficiency and minimize errors, ensures the quality of each sample’s metadata for secondary and tertiary analysis, is flexible enough to cope with the constant evolutions of lab workflows, and finally, allows the user to monitor and improve the quality and efficiency of the lab process.
Please join us for the 2018 Abbott Informatics Customer Forum at the JW Marriott in Miami, Florida, October 9-12, 2018. We’ve designed the conference this year, with 2 tracks, an educational track and a technical track to offer content relevant to everyone that touches STARLIMS. From executives, managers, developers, and end-users, to those new to STARLIMS and long-term loyal customers, there will be something for everyone!
