Facility Details

The Bioinformatics core offers bioinformatics consulting and data analysis services to help researchers analyze and understand the large data sets acquired from next generation sequencing and array-based technologies. We coordinate closely with other ICBR cores (Next-Gen Sequencing, Gene Expression, Cytometry, and Proteomics) on shared projects.

We collaborate with researchers in designing experiments and analyzing complex datasets by applying various data-analytical and theoretical methods, mathematical modeling and computational techniques. We develop and operate comprehensive pipelines enabling large-scale data processing, including NGS data analysis (e.g., RNA-Seq, DNA-Seq, methyl-Seq and ChIP-Seq,) single-cell analysis, transcriptome and genome annotation (project-based EST/genomic sequence assembly, annotation and gene prediction,) microarray-based data analysis (statistical and functional data analysis from major microarray platforms,) variant detection and metagenomics (characterization of microbial communities.)

Bioinformatics staff members have extensive experience in bioinformatics, genomics, transcriptomics and translational informatics in plant, animal and microbial systems. Our expertise includes big data analysis, statistical analysis, software development and high-performance computing. We strive to be scientific collaborators – rather than just service providers – using our expertise and skills to ensure the success of your projects.

Our services are offered at a standard hourly rate, and can be accessed on a fee-for-service basis or as long-term collaborations.
