About the Molecular Analysis Tools Knowledge Center
The caBIG™ Molecular Analysis Tools Knowledge Center is an NCI-supported Center operated by the Columbia University Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center and The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. The Knowledge Center provides a centralized, authoritative repository of knowledge, information, and web-based support to facilitate the deployment and ongoing development of caBIG™ tools, standards, and infrastructure in the molecular analysis domain. Key services provided by the Knowledge Center include:
- Providing domain expertise on using the supported tools to carry out molecular analyses
- Posting up-to-date installation packages for related tools
- Maintaining technical and end-user documentation
- Fostering open source development of caBIG tools by the community
- Collecting and monitoring defect reports, feature requests, and end-user requirements
The caBIG™ Knowledge Centers program (which comprises several Centers) is a component of the caBIG™ Enterprise Support Network (ESN). The development of geWorkbnech is in part funded through the caBIG™ (cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid) initiative. Information about the caBIG™ initiative is available at https://cabig.nci.nih.gov/. Information about the caBIG™ Enterprise Support Network is available at https://cabig.nci.nih.gov/esn/.
