Bioinformatics Facility

The ITMAT Bioinformatics Facility provide project based bioinformatics support for ITMAT translational researchers. Our focus has been on providing the computational infrastructure and programming support needed to conduct high-throughput proteomics experiments. We also support other genomics high-throughput technologies to a lesser extent.

The projects range from building Web applications for data analysis pipelines, scripting, clinical and basic science research support, and database and algorithm development. Recent efforts have focused on explorations of new models of computation, specifically Cloud Computing and GPUs, for use in genomic scale research.

Resources

The Bioinformatics Facility has a variety of IT infrastructures to facilitate informatics development for high-throughput sequencing, proteomics and lipidomics experiments. These include centralized storage and back-up of experimental data; a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) for annotation of experiments and data management; and independent high-throughput compute cluster facilities.
