The Bioinformatics Analysis Core (BAC) provides advice, training, the provision of computational tools and collaborative expertise to all IGMM researchers.

The facility has a track record in the analysis of novel, high throughput biological datasets, particularly sequencing data, and have co-authored many IGMM publications and grant proposals.

The BAC has three broad aims, which together constitute its mission statement:

  • Support: consultation on and provision of collaborative bioinformatics skills to research programmes across the IGMM.
  • Expertise: development and implementation of effective analysis strategies for common tasks, establishing best practice in IGMM data analysis.
  • Training: provision of training resources, instruction and advice to assist IGMM users in their own data analysis.

Consultations are available to individual researchers and groups to address questions about your data, possible analyses and associated issues. Please contact us by email in the first instance, describing your project (PI name, datasets involved, analyses envisaged, hypotheses to be addressed, intended timelines etc) as accurately as possible.
