What we do

We provide an IT infrastructure and training for users at BRIC, and analysis services to support the computational analysis of biological data.

Computing and storage infrastructure with automated backup

Software tools for formatting, analyzing, visualizing, interpreting and comparing biological data.

Databases and knowledgebases storing biological knowledge.

Bioinformatics analysis services from various biological data sources:

  • High-throughput sequencing experiments (e.g. RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, chromosome conformation capture experiments, single-cell sequencing, etc).
  • Microarrays gene expression data.
  • High-throughput cell-based screens.
  • And several others. Don’t hesitate to contact us if there is a data source of your interest that is not included in this list. We may be able to adapt to your needs.

Support in experimental design. A good experimental plan is key for a proper bioinformatic analysis. We encourage potential users to contact us early in the experimental design process. This will allow for a proper downstream analysis of the data and an earlier estimation of the time scale and planning of the projects.

Support in grant and scientific article writing. Support in writing methods sections and planning of experimental design in grants, and support in the manuscript preparation, including methods sections, results, etc.

Access and support for BRIC members to the intuitive Galaxy server where amateur bioinformaticians can run their own bioinformatic analyses.

Learn how to use Galaxy.

Training programs on handling and analyzing data for users at BRIC with diverse backgrounds and experience. Training sessions are organized yearly for groups of users.
