Genomics — the genetic mapping and DNA sequencing of sets of genes or the complete genomes of organisms, along with related genome analysis and database work — is emerging as one of the transformative sciences of the 21st century. But current bioinformatics tools are not accessible to most biological researchers. Now, a new computational and web-based tool called EDGE Bioinformatics is working to fulfill the promise of democratizing genomics.
