Computational Portal

A menu driven web portal to Life Science software programs. Access to the software is provided through forms that the user fills in. The portal then runs the programs and returns the results to the user via email notification. The portal provides a view of the program output which the user can then download as either individual files or as a compressed bundle all at once. The portal is password protected and job output is private to the user unless expressly shared. Sharing is group based. Accounts are granted to any UA or UA affiliated Life Science researcher or group. Please apply for an account today.
