CORE Browser (Comprehensive Oncology Research Environment Browser)

Launch App

CORE Browser (Comprehensive Oncology Research Environment Browser), developed and maintained by RISR, is a web-based research data desktop.

This application’s robust design creates a hassle-free central hub of files located across multiple platforms, including cloud-based storage. Users can view, manage, store, share, and organize those files without the need of using other applications.

With CORE Browser’s support of Amazon Simple Storage Service (AWS S3), power users have access to AWS’s Command line interface (CLI). Plans to expand cloud-based storage support in future releases.

Partnered with HCI’s Cancer Bioinformatics (CBI), researchers can easily manage their HCI High-Throughput Genomics (HTG) genomic experimentation and bioinformatic analysis files.
