BioTools provides access to a suite of 260 web-based sequence analysis and bioinformatics applications. BioTools also provides a portal to other research applications and resources, such as the HPC cluster, at UMassMed as well as at external sites. Archives for several research lists on campus (BioTools, Statistics, and NextGen Sequencing) are posted on BioTools.

The BioTools site is a resource of tools for bioinformatics for the five schools of the UMASS System. Some resources are licensed to the UMass Medical School and only usable at that site.

User manuals for the Illumina and SOLiD sequencing platforms are available and kept current on the BioTools website.
