Tools and methods in genomic data analysis: TGAC - Repositive Preliminary Survey Results
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
In this survey, we aimed to get a better understanding of the current software tools used by bioinformaticians and data scientists working in the field of genomics, as well as the scientific questions asked when analysing variant data.
Additionally, we were interested in the survey participants’ genomic data search and access habits and whether our recipients behave similarly to or differently from those surveyed in Van Schaik et al., 2014.
We sent out a short web questionnaire generated with typeform via e-mail to a selected user-base including nine questions in total.
The preliminary results presented are derived from 16 business professionals and researchers working in genomics, with their work field ranging from biology and bioinformatics to data science and software development.
