"As computer tools become more sophisticated, it's critical to provide every detail of how an analysis is done, in ways that are verifiable. If you can't reproduce the results, you can't really trust them," says James Taylor assistant professor of biology and math and computer science.
Taylor is the co-developer of Galaxy, an open-source software system that makes high-throughput data analysis reproducible and easily shared among experimental biologists and other researchers. Anyone with a web browser can analyze genomic or other complex data with Galaxy.
Contact Taylor to request a training session for your group. Better yet, enroll in one of his courses.
Genomic Technology recently named Taylor a rising star in genomics research. Read more about his work in this Emory Report profile.
