Informatics

Computational techniques have revolutionised biological research and our ability to capture data has grown exponentially.

Computational techniques have revolutionised biological research and our ability to capture data has grown exponentially.

Research groups need to know how to gather, manage and analyse data to answer their scientific research questions. They need to ensure that their members are well trained, and up-to-date with the latest techniques and able to make effective use of the wide range of opportunities provided by computational approaches.

We have deep and wide-ranging expertise across the many areas in which biology and computing intersect.

We have extensive experience of collaborating effectively with scientific groups of all levels of computational need, with particular expertise in:

  • Bioinformatics, particularly sequence bioinformatics/NGS analyses such as RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, variant analysis, phylogenetics, QTL analysis, GWAS
  • Data management, from the high level principles and policies through to tools, techniques and data sharing
  • Research computing infrastructure – HPC, HTC, Cloud computing, storage
  • Machine Learning, Deep Learning and AI approaches in biology
  • Image analysis, particularly computational microscopy and phenotyping

We can help with most aspects of analysis of biological data, particularly genomic and imaging data and can help at any stage of the process, from experimental design and planning, through data capture and management to analysis and reporting.

We can also provide training and consultancy in all of these areas, and more.

All external work we do is bespoke to your needs and consultancy based.
