Our centre provides bioinformatics support for a wide variety of genomics data analysis with current focus mainly on Next Generation Sequencing (NGS).
Stationed in-house we have dedicated analysts to provide core services on both standardized and customized data analysis. We have broad experience in different types of NGS projects such as RNA-Seq, de novo genome and transcriptome assembly, Exome sequencing, metagenomics etc. We are happy to share our experience and offer advice to any colleague.
For in-house data analysis, we apply popular tools for NGS data analysis such as BWA, Bowtie, Samtools, Picard, Bedtools, GATK, Varscan, Annovar, Tophat, Cufflinks, Velvet, Oases, and MEGAN etc. To facilitate those researchers who would like to get more involved in data analysis on their own, we have analysis workstations setup with user-friendly commerical software such as CLC Genomics workbench and GeneSpring for downstream data visualization, geneset and pathway analysis.
Other than bioinformatics help with NGS, we also offer assistance in gene expression, genotyping, copy number and various custom analysis.
Colleagues are also welcome to contact any academic members of the CGS for informal advice, or to discuss possible collaborations.
