The bioinformatics platform offers algorithmic development and customized data analysis services, including high-performance calculation, database management and software development. It constitutes an important asset for analysis of the data generated by the different research groups, and serves as technological support for the Institute’s other core facilities.
The bioinformatics platform is closely linked to the genomics core facility. It is responsible for all next-generation sequence analysis work: assembly of reference-genome or de-novo resequencing, transcriptome and exome-capture data, differential expression analysis, mutation detection, and so on. Platform members provide the following services:
- Software development
- Design, implementation and maintenance of databases and user interfaces
- Statistical analysis
- Algorithm automation and parallelization
