Should We Have Blind Faith in Bioinformatics Software? Illustrations from the SNAP Web Based Tool

PLoS One
PMCID: 4351168
PMID: 25742008
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0118925

[…] array. It is however difficult to confirm this hypothesis as the SNAP source codes are not available for users. In addition, SNAP relies on another software developed by the Broad, Gene Cruiser (, to extract data related to SNP annotations []. Looking at the differences of Cohen’s Kappa coefficients using the HapMap 3 and 1000 Genomes references, w […]


Where in the genome are we? A cautionary tale of database use in genomics research

Front Genet
PMCID: 3604632
PMID: 23519237
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2013.00038

[…] s between databases can also introduce significant errors when translating gene IDs from one source to another. Even when using one of the several ID converters available (e.g., DAVID ID Converter or GeneCruiser), errors can be introduced when synonyms, HGNC symbols and other identifiers are inconsistently mapped or when the timelines for the database releases are not correctly matched or are out […]

[…] trix) were coupled by using either accession number or gene symbols provided by the manufacturers. About 2,000 genes that could not be coupled by accession number or gene symbol were linked using the GeneCruiser software Using these two methods, we were able to link 14,650 NimbleGen promoters from a total of 24,124 promoters to the Affymetrix probese […]
