I just came across a useful repository of genetic simulation resources I thought would make a good addition to Genome Toolbox. The site, aptly called Genetic Simulation Resources (GSR), provides a detailed listing of over 80 useful software applications available for genetic simulations. The NCI sponsored catalog aids in scanning through available simulation programs, comparing similar applications, and quickly identifying the most appropriate software application for a particular study. In addition to providing a description and external link, literature citations are also listed for many of the simulation packages. If you are the developer of a genetic simulation resource that is not listed in the GSR repository, you can submit a request to add it. Overall, a great resource for simulating data for genetic studies that may help you avoid reinventing the wheel by programming a de novo simulation routine. A good first place to check.
Welcome to the Genome Toolbox! I am glad you navigated to the blog and hope you find the contents useful and insightful for your genomic needs. If you find any of the entries particularly helpful, be sure to click the +1 button on the bottom of the post and share with your colleagues. Your input is encouraged, so if you have comments or are aware of more efficient tools not included in a post, I would love to hear from you. Enjoy your time browsing through the Toolbox.
