Presenting Millstone: Genome Engineering in the Cloud

Screen shot 2014-03-21 at 4.38.03 PM

Next Tuesday we are unveiling Millstone, a web platform for genome engineering and analysis at the SynBERC 2014 Spring symposium. The product of a team led by myself and Gleb Kuznetsov, Millstone is the culmination of bioinformatics tool development that came out of the reColi project and other genome engineering efforts in the lab.

Millstone is a distributed bioinformatics software platform designed to facilitate genome engineering for synthetic biology. It allows you to automate iterative design, analysis, and debugging for projects involving hundreds of bacterial genomes.
