The BRCF Bioinformatics Core staff is working remotely. We do not anticipate this affecting the overall capacity of the core nor will it impact the work on your project. While remote, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
*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.
“We are thrilled with the services provided to our team by the BRCF Bioinformatics Core, the services provide enabled us to publish top tier papers and be awarded multiple NIH funded grants. We are very grateful to have this Core available to us on campus!”
“I’ve greatly enjoyed my experience working with the Bioinformatics Core. Chris and his team were instrumental in establishing a workflow for the measurement of allele-specific expression using data from targeted RNA-seq and DNA-seq. Their services were timely and helped us to publish and secure continued funding.”
