With the increasing prevalence of new ‘omics technologies such as single-cell RNA-seq and spatial transcriptomics, as well as multi-omic analysis methods that integrate datasets from different ‘omics domains, bioinformatics tools are required to operate on ever larger datasets, which can range in the tens to hundreds of gigabytes or greater. One such bioinformatics tool is GenePattern, developed in the Mesirov Lab at the School of Medicine at UCSD. GenePattern provides a platform for reproducible genomic analysis for users at all levels of computational sophistication.
