NIAMS IRP Researchers Develop Software for ChIP-Seq Data Analysis
A recently published article from researchers in the NIAMS Intramural Research Program describes a newly developed software tool for ChIP-Seq data analysis. The Peak Assignment and Profile Search Tool (PAPST) is a user-friendly platform that provides quick analysis of complex ChIP-Seq data and puts powerful bioinformatics in the hands of bench scientists.
NIAMS Welcomes High School Students to the Lab
The Career Development and Outreach Branch (CDOB) welcomed 24 high school students to tour NIAMS labs as part of the annual "NIH Take Your Child to Work Day" event. Students were given a brief overview of the NIH and NIAMS before heading to the lab to learn about genomic editing. The hands-on demonstration consisted of DNA isolation and modification using automated robotics, and participants were given the opportunity to load samples and run agarose gels.
Former NIAMS Postbac Fellow Wins Student Research Fellowship Award
