Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics services can be obtained through the platform on a weekly rate. Researchers associated with La Trobe University can obtain a heavily subsidised rate.

Analysis

The main areas where we can help you with Bioinformatics analysis are:

  • General Bioinformatics Advice: Software usage, Basic QC, Read-mapping, variant calling,  R (Statistics) etc.
  • Differential Expression: RNA-Seq/transcriptomics, Microarray
  • Analysis: Go term/pathway, Gene set testing, ChIP-Seq, Variant Calling, etc.
  • Data Processing: Scripting, Parallel Computing etc
  • Software tool and pipeline development:
  • Bio-Computing: CLC Genomics, High-Performance Computing (LIMS-HPC)
  • Software Install: Software packages on LIMS-HPC
  • Grants: work estimates for grant applications

We have access to a range of other areas via the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative (VLSCI).
