In following the guidance from Michigan Medicine and the University of Michigan, the BRCF Bioinformatics Core staff are working remotely. We do not anticipate this affecting the overall capacity of the core nor will it impact the work on your project. Until we return to campus, we are happy to arrange touchpoints with you via phone or videoconference at your convenience. Please let us know if you have questions or concerns by contacting bioinformatics@umich.edu.

The Bioinformatics Core

helps researchers identify and interpret patterns in RNA and DNA by placing sequencing data into a biologically meaningful context. This encompasses assisting with experimental design, developing reproducible workflows, analyzing next-generation sequencing data, and supporting manuscript development/publication.

Our Process

Consultation

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.

Analysis

We provide analysis of high-throughput sequencing data, including RNA-SeqChIP-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.

*When requesting a consultation, please include key experimental details including data type (RNA, DNA, single-cell, etc.), species, the expected number of samples, and the timeline for sample submission in all requests.
