Core Facilities

Bioinformatics

The bioinformatics core facility supports all institute members with state-of-the-art computational biology tools for the successful execution of their research.

We are a multidisciplinary team with backgrounds in molecular biology, plant biology, genome biology and physics.

To make sure that no need goes unattended our range of services includes: Analytics, SaaS (Software as a Service); PaaS (Platform as a Service); IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service). Click here for more.

More than understanding, we embrace the heterogeneous needs of researchers with a wide variety of research focuses and bioinformatics skills. Above all, the bioinformatics core facility serves as a hub for research involving computational biology. From batch primers design to networks assembly and big data analysis, passing through the hosting of in-house genome browsers we provide all types of bioinformatics support. 

Workshops take place every 3 months to inform researchers of the continuous development in the range of analytical skills, platforms and infrastructure.
