Bioinformatics Core Facility: high-quality user support in bioinformatics analysis


The Bioinformatics Core Facility at the MPI for Biology of Ageing actively participates and supports the research staff in all areas of bioinformatics analysis. We are furthermore integrated in the Habermann lab and are thereby able to offer development of custom-based bioinformatics tools and in-depth analysis of datasets. [more...]
