By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- Investigators publish new report on Bioinformatics. According to news reporting originating in Davis, California, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "It is common for computational analyses to generate large amounts of complex data that are difficult to process and share with collaborators. Standard methods are needed to transform such data into a more useful and intuitive format."
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of California, "We present ReportingTools, a Bioconductor package, that automatically recognizes and transforms the output of many common Bioconductor packages into rich, interactive, HTML-based reports. Reports are not generic, but have been individually designed to reflect content specific to the result type detected. Tabular output included in reports is sortable, filterable and searchable and contains context-relevant hyperlinks to external databases. Additionally, in-line graphics have been developed for specific analysis types and are embedded by default within table rows, providing a useful visual summary of underlying raw data."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "ReportingTools is highly flexible and reports can be easily customized for specific applications using the well-defined API."
