omictools.com: Search engine for biological data analysis

By | May 3, 2017

Re: omictools.com

Finding software that is relevant to any biological analysis can be inspired by reading a paper or perhaps searching within Google.

The web site https://omictools.com/ contains 16,971 software (omic) tools that are organized in categories shown on the home page. Checking a bit further one can find interesting entries such as:

High-throughput sequencing data analysis… https://omictools.com/sequencing-category

Workflow/pipeline software tools | Whole-genome… https://omictools.com/software-pipelines-category

Whole-genome sequencing data analysis bioinformatics… https://omictools.com/whole-genome-resequencing-category

Within these categories are specific types of analysis, for example RNA-Seq that currently lists 1200 tools: RNA sequencing data analysis bioinformatics software… https://omictools.com/rna-seq-category

The web pages offer a download link specifying Desktop, web, virtual, DockerCloud, Dataset as the type of file. However, many “Deskop” software can in fact be compatible with a large Linux installation.

This repository should be useful to any researcher trying to find software not only for Next Gen. Sequencing but for most “biological data” analysis.

    Thank you, that’s a well-organized and handy tool. I like the idea of a “3-dimensional” classification by Technology / Interpretation / Topic

    Thanks, Jean-Yves! This looks very useful to me. I am looking for QC tools for shotgun metagenomics in particular. Several are listed, along with a review paper.
