From December 21 to January 1, the GenePattern team will be unavailable due to the year-end closing of the Broad Institute. During this time, the GenePattern servers and repositories (including GParc) will remain up and fully functional. We will be monitoring this daily and, should anything happen to disrupt service, we will work to resolve any issues within 24 hrs. However, due to the holiday closing, please be aware that:
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
Happy Holidays from the GenePattern team!
