Informatics Core - Custom software development

The Informatics Core has wide ranging experience in creating custom scientific software. Projects for researchers at Scripps include:

  • ImageJ plugins to automate Region Of Interest mapping and Particle Analysis (Ja, Rumbaugh and Miller labs)
  • Visualization of sequence data using BioJava (Griffin lab)
  • Automated sifting and aggregation of 100’s of Graphpad Prism worksheets (Griffin lab)
  • Automated searching and report generation from Biological websites e.g. CREB database, Facility animal management database (Conkright, Cleveland labs)
  • Use of Lilly MedChem Rules chemical descriptors (Lead ID, multiple labs)
  • Automation of multi-plate export from Cellomics CellInsight system (Lead ID)
  • Excel calculation templates for mouse metabolism studies, %Inhibition calculation, well mapping etc. (Butler lab, multiple labs)
  • Excel Addins for image management, NCBI Entrez / PubMed interation, etc. (mutiple labs)
  • Web based microarray and RNA-Seq data processing and visualization tools. (Peteri and Cleveland labs)

We would be pleased to talk through these projects and your own ideas. Many problems can become more tractable by utilizing simple software tools.
