MPSSR User Support
The MPSSR is negotiating with a corporate partner to make affordable data analysis available to our users. When the details of the arrangement are finalized, an announcement will appear on this page, along with instructions on accessing the software and links to the portal.
The following lists of articles are provided to direct new users to appropriate literature on the topics of short read sequencing and its various applications, as well as some papers we found interesting. This list is not meant to be exhaustive, but to provide a starting place for investigators to learn about the technology and how it can be used.
