Dr. Ferhat Ay and his lab are currently located at the La Jolla Institute of Immunology. Our lab focuses on the study of the 3D genome including the development of statistical tools to better interrogate functions and associations between the 3D genome and other biological factors.
The BioExcel Building Blocks (biobb) software library is a collection of Python wrappers on top of popular biomolecular simulation tools. This library offers a layer of interoperability between the wrapped tools, which make them compatible and prepared to be directly interconnected to build complex biomolecular workflows. The building blocks can be used in many different workflow systems, including Galaxy, CWL, Jupyter Notebook and PyCOMPSs – notably their ...
