Bioinformatics Data Analysis
close up of computer screen showing bioinformatics data

Offering a variety of analyses.

Our Process

We offer an initial, free pre-analysis consultation to discuss the types of analysis and support bioinformatics can provide, in addition to assisting with experimental design to best answer the biological question(s) of interest.


We provide analysis of high-throughput sequencing data, including RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, and Exome-Seq, as well as other high throughput data. We generate detailed project plans to outline analysis, implement reproducible workflows, generate visualizations of complex data, and assist data uploads to public repositories.

Follow Up Meeting

Following the delivery of results, we meet with researchers (faculty, staff, post-docs and graduate students) to answer follow-up questions.
