New Coronascape tool will help unlock big-data insights for COVID-19

Excerpt from the Article:

Scientists at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute today announced they have released Coronascape (coronascape.org), a customized version of the Metascape bioinformatics platform that removes big-data analysis hurdles for biologists. Coronascape will enable scientists to interpret the growing body of big data related to COVID-19. More than 23,000 papers about COVID-19 have been published since January 2020—and this number continues to rise exponentially. 

“A significant number of publications on SARS-CoV-2 contain large-scale OMICs data, which is not readily interpretable and actionable by many researchers, creating a big-data bottleneck,” says Sumit Chanda, Ph.D., director of the Immunity and Pathogenesis Program at Sanford Burnham Prebys and senior member of the Metascape team. “Coronascape provides a central clearinghouse for scientists to laser-focus their OMICs analysis and data-mining efforts to find effective drug targets, therapies and vaccines for COVID-19.”
