Bioinformatics support for Omics data analysis

We are experienced in analyzing genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, epigenetic and metagenomic data. Our previous and current projects include studies using various high-throughput technologies, such as whole genome sequencing (WGS), whole exome sequencing (WES), targeted region sequencing, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, Meth-Seq, gene expression microarray, genotyping microarray and protein microarray. BiCo scientists can help investigators with omics data analysis using available software and can also develop customized software tools.

Project design and data analysis consultation

Consultation services are available upon request or during office hours. Coordinated project design consultation and data analysis support are available with other ASU core facilities, including genomics, proteomics, microarray and imaging facilities.

Software, database and website development

Bioinformatics support is available for both basic research and clinical research. BiCo supports bioinformatics analysis software and develops analysis pipelines for diverse data types. The facility also designs and hosts Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) research databases. Examples of such activities include: (1) designing database systems for specific research problems; (2) developing interfaces for data access, storage and analysis; and (3) deploying these applications on the core's computing resources. BioCo scientists also can help researchers integrate diverse data sets, such as genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and imaging information. Databases can be designed to support basic research projects and clinical research studies.
