BART (Binding Analysis for Regulation of Transcription) Web
Working with researchers in the Zang Lab in the Center for Public Health Genomics (CPHG), RC helped launch BARTweb, an interactive web-based tool for users to analyze their Genelist or ChIP-seq datasets. BARTweb is a containerized Flask front-end (written in Python) that ingests files and submits them to a more robust Python-based genomics pipeline running on Rivanna, UVA’s high performance computing cluster (HPC). This architecture – of a public web application that uses a supercomputer to process data – is a new model for UVA, and one that eases the learning curve for researchers who may not have access to an HPC system or the expertise to run a BART pipeline in the command-line.
