The Stem Cell Commons analysis system uses Refinery, a web-based data visualization and analysis system powered by an ISA-Tab-compatible data repository for public and private data sets. Analyses are implemented as Galaxy workflows and executed through the Galaxy API.


You can reach the Stem Cell Commons team at "stem-cell-commons{'at'}".


The Stem Cell Commons is funded by the Harvard Stem Cell Institute. Development of Refinery has also been funded in part by an Agilent Technologies Emerging Insights Grant.
