Helping you to handle your biomedical data

The key to effective computational biology is selecting the right tools. Biologists today spend a lot of time analyzing data. With software being poorly documented and difficult to locate on the web, picking the right tools to do this can be a time-sink.

OMICtools was launched in 2013 by Arnaud Desfeux, a PhD in neurobiology and founder of omicX, to address this global challenge and offer an effective way of discovering bioinformatics tools. OMICtools is driven by biologists and computational scientists with input from all corners of the scientific community, including developers, programmers, biomedical researchers, and clinicians.

OMICtools strives to accelerate research in bioinformatics, making tools accessible to everyone and offering a stimulating work environment to assist life scientists extracting new findings from the omics data.
