What we do

We are dedicated to the processing, analysis and interpretation of Next-Generation Sequencing data. We interact closely with research groups, and provide tailored comprehensive bioinformatics solutions. Additionally, we provide standard analysis pipelines for the most frequent research questions. We train researchers and bioinformaticians on various aspects of data analysis, and provide access to our computing infrastructure for running analyses.
