Write a review and enter to win exciting prizes!

Do you use specific tools to analyze your biomedical data? Offer your feedback on the tools we reference and enter to win a set of headphones and gift cards! To participate, all you need to do is provide your opinion on the performance of the tools which you routinely use. The contest is open until the 4 February.

How does the contest work?

  • Sign in to your account (or sign up for free if you aren’t already a member).
  • Locate your favorite tools: use the search engine and filters to rapidly locate your tools.
  • Click on “write a review” to give it a rating and provide your feedback.

Why is your review important?

Reviews offer a double advantage. As a user, you can rapidly identify which tools can optimally fulfil your needs based on other users’ experience. As a reviewer, you can increase the visibility of your skills concerning a specific software and become known in the omics community as a scientific expert in your field.


To be useful, the reviews should discuss elements relative to the tool’s performance, ease of installation, and ease of use.  So make sure you highlight to a maximum the extent of the functionalities and their benefits. Also don’t forget to mention what you consider can be improved – the program developers will appreciate it!
