Overview of Services

The Bioinformatics Shared Resource (BSR) is a member of the Cancer Center Shared Resources. Our mission is to provide bioinformatics services to the other Shared Resources and to individual researchers throughout the Institute. Our services span the entire field of bioinformatics from Next-Gen Sequencing Data Analysis, pathway modelling, and microarray analysis to high-throughput screening and data management.


Our services includes (but not limited to):

  • Next-Generation Sequencing data analysis: from reads to biology (RNA-Seq, ChiP-Seq, DNA-seq, exome sequencing, targeted resequencing, SNP and indel detection and more)   
  • Statistical analysis, e.g., power analysis and calculation of the optimum number of animals needed for the experiment
  • De-novo network discovery and identification of master regulator genes with Viper-KR, Bayesian networks, and related tools
  • Systems biology support and pathway analysis (via GeneGO, IPA and NextBio)
  • Microarray, metabolomics, proteomics, methylation, and/or drug data analysis (from raw signals to biology/hypothesis verification); individual and/or integrative approaches
  • Genome and gene family analysis and annotation (e.g., promoter and transcription factor binding site identification: Transfac & public tools)
  • Custom applications developments and tool support
  • Bioinformatics classes and training
  • Grant and paper preparation assistance
  • Website and database development

Support for the BSR comes from three sources: 

  • Participation in PIs grants
  • Cancer Center Support Grant
  • Chargebacks
