The Gerstein lab has made it a priority to develop its cutting edge algorithms into tools in the form of downloadable programs, webservers, and databases. These tools are the heart of our work in transforming the big data of genomes into knowledge. For a full list of tools, with links to download, see the lab tools page. The source code of many of our tools in avalable on our lab Github page
