Computing @ NSCI

At NSCI our work relies on computational resources.  Large datasets and uniquely structured experimental methods require novel interpretations of typical informatic techniques. Close collaboration between computational and experimental scientists ensures the value of our contributions. Below find links to our interactive data sets as well as publicly available data for download.

Public Data Sets:

RPE & Nicotinamide: RNA-seq analysis to examine the global impact of Nicotinamide (NAM) on hiPSC-derived RPE transcriptome in order to better understand the mechanism of action of NAM. NAM inhibited the expression of Age related Macular degeneration (AMD) associated protein transcripts in hiPSC-derived RPE.

Aging in the the Subventricular Zone: Expression profiling by high throughput sequencing of RNA extracted from Mouse SVZ, in triplicate, from ages 2, 6, 18 and 22 months.
