The bioinformatics core facility provides bioinformatics services for all IBMP researchers, specially in next generation sequencing data analysis.
The platform has a dedicated server that is open in partnership with GMGM and LNCA.
The facility has expertise in NGS data analysis, particularly with Illumina and Oxford Nanopore technologies. It covers various topics, including :
– Small genome assembly,
– Transcriptome analysis (RNA-seq and smallRNA-seq)
– 16S metagenomics
– Protein/DNA-RNA interactions (ChIP-seq, …)
Our team collaborate with AEG platform to assist biologist from experimental design to results exploration.
Provision of a dedicated computing and storage infrastructure
With the SSI team, the bioinformatics provided a dedicated server of 192 cores, 864 Gb RAM and 60 To of working space for the IBMP and partners. Private storage volumes for each institute are available for project storage and backup. Several software tools, in particular for high-throughput data analysis, are deployed on the cluster.
Anyone working in a partner lab can ask an account with the Account form. Other people can contact the platform manager to ask a partnership.
Tool and workflow development
The facility has expertise in programming (R, python, bash, perl) and develops some visualisation tools and databases on request.
