Scientific Web Programming Group
ABCC’s Scientific Web Programming Group (SWPG) provides scientific web application development supporting the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) scientists and staff. To learn more, please contact us.
Office of Science and Technology Resources (OSTR)
The Office of Science and Technology Resources (OSTR) identifies, evaluates and makes available new technologies and scientific resources to NCI’s Center for Cancer Research (CCR) investigators through partnerships, collaborations, contracts and other technology transfer agreements with outside organizations, including the private sector.
NCI/Rockland Antibody Request Portal
The NCI/Rockland Antibody Request Portal is a comprehensive web application which aids in collaboration between NCI investigators and Rockland Immunochemicals in the development of rabbit polyclonal antibodies against key phospho- and non-phosphoproteins implicated in cancer. For more information, please visit the OSTR website
The Informatics Core operates as a partnership between the NCI’s Center for Cancer Research and Leidos Biomedical’s Advanced Biomedical Computing Center to provide scientific, informatics, and computational analysis support to CCR investigators. With expertise in computational biology and bioinformatics, the core provides solutions to the challenges in managing the ever-growing amount and complexity of data generated through high-throughput genomic and molecular technologies. The IFX site allows customers to request analysis, interact with IFX team members, and view results.
The publications system is available to all Leidos Biomedical groups to manage and track their publications. The publications system allows for robust data entry and reporting as well as user access management.
PacBio is an application used to track samples and sample life cycles. This application manages work orders, samples, libraries, run creation, and results data. Customers are able to login and view their results directly.
The Confocal site is an umbrella site housing five different core sites that are available in Bethesda and Frederick. This site showcases each lab’s specializations, equipment, staff, techniques, location, and contact information.
The Protein Capture Reagents Program, funded by the NIH Common Fund, was created in an effort to provide low-cost, high-quality renewable affinity reagents for human proteins as a resource for the scientific community. The overall purpose of the program is to create a library of these reagents for public distribution while simultaneously improving upon technologies for generating protein affinity reagents in an applicable, high-throughput manner. The reagents are produced through a collaborative effort from our three production centers—Rutgers, JHU (Johns Hopkins U), and RAN (Recombinant Antibody Network). Rutgers is focused on antigen production, while JHU is involved in monoclonal antibody production, and RAN in recombinant antibody production. This Protein Capture Reagents Program Data Portal is where researchers can browse publically-available reagents to obtain through our three distributors: DSHB, DNASU, and CDI, Inc. The portal itself provides all relevant information about the reagents including but not limited to antigen source, binder type, performed validations, and links to distributors.
Clinical Proteomic Technologies for Cancer
The Reagents Data Portal serves as a central source of reagents and resources made available by the Clinical Proteomic Technologies for Cancer (CPTC) initiative for the scientific community to support protein/peptide measurement and analysis efforts. This invaluable resource has been developed to advance proteomics research platforms for the prevention, early detection and treatment of cancer.
The Advanced Biomedical Computing Center (ABCC) has systematically identified in several mammalian species the genomic regions predicted to form each non-B candidate structure and placed these into non-B DB. Currently, non-B DB provides the most complete list of alternative DNA structure predictions available, including Z-DNA motifs, quadruplex forming motifs, inverted repeats, mirror repeats and direct repeats and their associated subsets of cruciforms, triplex and slipped structures, respectively.
