The laboratory analyses begin with RNA or DNA, provided by investigators, and produce scan data (microarrays) or sequence data (NGS) along with quality control data. These data are available via password-protected accounts accessible through this web site.
Biostatistical Support is available at the facility to educate investigators about approaches and tools for microarray and NGS data analysis. Assistance with concepts and software.
Instrumentation, computers and other start-up costs have been provided by the generosity of donors. The pricing structure for laboratory analyses consists of two tiers - one for DFCI investigators, and another for investigators outside of DFCI.
