At the Interfaculty Bioinformatics Unit of the University of Bern (IBU) we provide services and expertise to assist researchers of the three "Life-Science" Faculties (i.e. Sciences, Medicine, and VetSuisse) in data analysis and project planning for large-scale experiments (e.g. next generation sequencing, genome assembly). Furthermore, we have our own research programme and collaborate on large and complex projects. We develop methods to analyse high-throughput data. We have a high-performance compute cluster and a data storage system that we use for our own research, collaborations and service projects.
