The Integrative Bioinformatics Station is a suite of modules for data management and analysis developed by the integrative bioinformatics laboratory of The University of Texas MDAnderson Cancer Center. These modules are primarily developed as Matlab (MathWorks Inc) toolboxes with Graphic User Interfaces which are then compiled as stand alone freely downloadable applications. Most of these modules are also available with open source.
- Run MATLAB Component Runtime (MCR) installer: http://www.bioinformaticstation.org/win/MCRInstaller.exe (122 Mb).
- Download the Integrative Bioinformatics Station, http://www.bioinformaticstation.org/win/IBS.zip (173 Kb), and extract files to a directory of your preference, preferably an empty one.
- Double click on the Bioinformatics Station shortcut to start. Note you can move this shortcut to other locations such as the desktop or the quick launch menu.
- Important: MCR only works if you are connected to the Internet.
