From December 24, 2014 to January 5, 2015, the GenePattern team will be out of office for the year-end closing of the Broad Institute.

  • GenePattern staff will not be reachable by phone or responding to email. This includes our help system, Twitter, and Facebook.
  • Emails (including help tickets) and phone calls will be responded to as quickly as possible, once we return to the office on Jan 5, 2015.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.


Happy Holidays from the GenePattern team!
