Bioinformatics services can be obtained through the platform at an hourly rate. Researchers associated with La Trobe University can obtain a subsidised rate, which makes this capability accessible to most researchers. We can provide expert advice in experimental design, data analysis, visualisation and publication.


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
