Core facility (CF)

Short Description

The Core Facility Bioinformatics is a service-oriented core facility and offers infrastructre, consultancy, education and services in computational analysis and processing of high throughput DNA sequencing data, involving:

• Transcriptomics: Gene expression analysis
• Genomics: Genome annotation and genetic variants analysis
• Metagenomics: The study of community DNA
• Epigenomics: The study of genome regulation

We also provide mass spectrometry-based data analysis services in:

• Metabolomics: The analysis of small molecules, metabolites, and lipids
• Proteomics: The large-scale study of proteins
