Molecular Biology Bioinformatics Overview
The Bioinformatics Core Facility offers computational analysis collaborations to all members of the department and on a consulting basis to researchers outside the department. The Bioinformatics group performs analysis in many areas of computational biology, including next generation sequence analysis, nanoString probe selection, gene expression analysis, and any other algorithms necessary to answer biological questions.
We collaborate with researchers on projects in all stages of discovery, from initial development and grant writing through publication. As both biologists and computer scientists, our focus is on answering biological questions. We apply both existing and custom algorithms to provide insight into large and complex datasets, and provide tools so our collaborators can explore their data themselves.
