Posted on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at 11:02AM by GenePattern Team

GenePattern servers hosted at the Broad Institute will be offline on Saturday, October 28th, due to planned Broad IT system maintenance. They will be back up by 8am on Sunday, October 29, 2017.

Affected servers are:

Please note that files loaded from the Broad Institute, and this website will also be unavailable for at least a portion of Saturday, as those files systems will also be down for maintenance. This means that some drop-down menus may not display properly and example data on our website and in our documentation may not be available.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and invite you to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.
