National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS)

Addressing the scientific challenges of explosive growth in genome sequencing data

The mission of the National Center for Genome Analysis Support is to enable the US biological research community 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.
