There seems to be a multiplication of online tool that can be used, within certain limits, to help with bio-informatics. In the context where bio-informaticians are a limited resource and student lab members are often numerous:
What online tools do you think could be used by students to help them be more independent in their projects and analysis, potentially keeping bio-informatics resources for deeper problems?
Ultimately, I will agree with anyone suggesting that they learn to program (R, python, perl...), but I would really like to have your opinion about online tools like, for example, Biomart, Galaxy, or whichever such approaches you have experienced with. What would you recommend?
