The mission of the National Center for Genome Analysis Support is to enable the biological research community of the US to analyze, understand, and make use of the vast amount of genomic information now available. NCGAS focuses particularly on transcriptome- and genome-level assembly, phylogenetics, metagenomics/transcriptomics and community genomics.
The National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS) at Indiana University has received $627,854 from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to continue its work helping scientists analyze, understand, and make use of the vast quantities of genomic information now available. In a separate, collaborative award, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) has received $131,987 from NSF as part of the NCGAS renewal.
The three-year grant renewal will allow the center to develop and deliver services that meet a national need for support of genome analyses that includes consulting services, software enhancements, and computation for the national community of researchers. The center currently supports hundreds of scientists working on more than 40 long-term research projects all over the US.
