ITTC Project

An Online Clearinghouse for Bioinformatics Software Sharing and Evaluation

Project Award Date: 09-29-2006


The registry will help prevent the duplication of comparable tools and publicize technical developments. It will collect user feedback and provide reliable cross-platform documentation.

After testing is complete, all K-INBRE (Kansas- Idea Network of Biomedical Research Excellence) participants and other Central States INBRE institutions will have access on a password-protected registration basis. A successful beta test would further broaden access to academic institutions on a national scale, subject to registration and verification of academic status. Developers of a given tool could remove access to that tool and any associated documentation in the event of an anticipated commercialization initiative. The Clearinghouse would be housed on an existing K-INBRE-funded server.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
