These researchers work on cancer research, trying to develop assays to measure drug activity and identifying biomarkers of aggressiveness and/or progression. They are using MS proteomics to generate data files on LC-MS/MS instruments. Each of these experiments involves DDA files that are approximately 300-500 MB, and typically at least 6-12 of those files will go into a single experiment. They also occasionally collect RNA-seq data for proteogenomics strategies in collaboration with the Center for Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics and the group of Professor Tim Griffin. Those files are also hundreds of MB each, and need to be run in replicates of at least triplicate. The group uses Galaxy and Galaxy-P to process data.
