Informatics Tools

The Zacharewski Lab has been involved in creating a series of informatics tools. Some information about the tools is provided below. You can access the tools by clicking the corresponding links on the right.


CREDBLE (Cis Regulatory Element Database: Limitless Edition)

CREDBLE was created by the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Laboratory (CBBL) of the Gene Expression in Development and Disease Initiative (GEDD). The goals of the CREDBLE project are:

  1. To create an open framework for the management of cis regulatory element data
  2. To facilitate data visualization using existing GenomeBrowsers
  3. To facilitate the identification and visualization of elements for multiple proteins simultaneously
  4. To serve as a data dissemination portal for CREDBLE-supported projects

The site currently provides two types of searches: a flex based search, and an advanced URL-based search. The Flex based search also has the ability to save your search queries in spreadsheet, tab delimited text, or UCSC genome browser track formats. You can access the flex based search at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHpM4fj3Drc


AIMS (Asset Inventory Management System)

AIMS was created by the Zacharewski lab and the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Laboratory (CBBL).

AIMS uses a barcode system to keep track of a group's assets including people who have handled the object, and how the item has been used. Most importantly, AIMS makes it possible to quickly find these assets, referred to as tracking units, by keeping track of their current location. You can access tutorials on the installation, setup and use of AIMS below.
