  About The Filter Interpreter

The Filter Interpreter Application was developped in a collaborative effort between BACPAC Resources at Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute and the Mammalian Comparative Genomics Laboratory of Ken Dewar at the McGill University and Genome Quebec Innovation Centre to facilitate the decoding of high density library screening results for end users.

The Filter Interpreter Application is a java downloadable application that allows the end user to easily generate a sorted list of clones, with standardized and community accepted clone nomenclature.

The application package is updated every night to reflect changes and additions made to our library database.


Documentation on how to use the Filter Interpreter is available from within the application under the Documentation - Instructions menu item.
