This is the home of the Bioinformatics Team (BioITeam) at the University of Texas at Austin.
The BioITeam (short for bioinformatics team) is a consortium of bio-computing scientists at the University of Texas comprised of scientists from TACC, GSAF/CBRS, CCBB, and CSSB.
Mission of the BioITeam:
Provide "one-stop" unified support for bioinformatics:
support biological computation at TACC
provide software tools, pipelines and implementation support
serve as a clearing house for educational resources
We are a group of users interested in pooling our efforts with others to reduce the time spent implementing new software and databases and on training ourselves and others. We are predominently, but not exclusively, focused on tools for next-generation sequencing (NGS) analysis.
Our general model is that TACC serve as the reference implementation for stable software releases so most of the "power computing" can be done at TACC, but in addition acknowledge that most of us use resources in addition to TACC, and often need tools, databases, or other resources not globally supported at TACC.
