Zeitlinger Lab Data




We are fully committed to transparency and reproducibility of genomics research.

We advocate literate programming, a technology that integrates the writing of prose and the execution of programming code within the same document. Literate programming promotes transparency and reproducibility in scientific research by improving documentation, collaborative interactions and code sharing upon publication.

For maximum transparency and reproducibility, we not only publish our raw data in GEO but also provide full access to our analyses in most of our recent publications:

  • We provide the analysis code via our GitHub account zeitlingerlab.
  • We provide public Amazon Machine Images (AMI) running Linux, which contain all the raw data, processed data, analysis code and software tools necessary to reproduce the figures and tables published in a particular manuscript.

Such extended access to data is available for:
