Strong Points: Large collection of software links
Weak Points: BioGrids technical support restricted to select institutions


The BioGrids Consortium offers technical support to researchers at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital by providing preconfigured installations and maintenance for a large suite of software applications that encompass high-throughput sequencing, genomics, proteomics, and data visualization. However, one need not be a researcher at those institutions to take advantage of the resources offered on the BioGrids website: namely, the small collection of freely accessible webinars and the expansive collection of links to all 120 of the software applications supported by BioGrids. From this link collection (found under “supported applications”), site visitors are provided brief descriptions of each application and external links to the downloadable applications themselves. Visitors can filter the software application by license type (e.g., academic, industry, etc.) and will be thrilled to find that almost all of the software packages are available to researchers within each of these professional spheres.
