Myrna 1.2.3 – Cloud-scale Differential Gene Expression for RNA-seq

Myrna 1.2.3

:: DESCRIPTION

Myrna is a cloud computing tool for calculating differential gene expression in large RNA-seq datasets. Myrna uses Bowtie for short read alignment and R/Bioconductor for interval calculations, normalization, and statistical testing. These tools are combined in an automatic, parallel pipeline that runs in the cloud (Elastic MapReduce in this case) on a local Hadoop cluster, or on a single computer, exploiting multiple computers and CPUs wherever possible.

RaTrav 20130916 – Calculating Mean First Passage Times using Hill’s and Monte Carlo algorithms

RaTrav 20130916

:: DESCRIPTION

RaTrav tool was designed to support computational biology studies where mean first-passage times (MFPTs) between initial and single, or multiple, final states in network-like systems are used. Two methods are made available for which their efficiency is strongly dependent on the topology of the defined network. The user is required to prepare a text file with the structure of a given network, along with some additional basic parameters.
