In the Bioinformatics Unravelling Group of the University of Fribourg (BUGFri), we support life science researchers by providing expertise in data analysis of next-generation sequencing experiments, or any large-scale biological experiment requiring bioinformatics resources. We focus on genome assembly, annotation and comparison, as well as on mutant and structure variant identification by resequencing. We also perform metagenomics, RNAseq and ChIPseq data analysis, proteome clustering and ortholog/paralog classification, as well as pathway and gene set enrichment analysis.

Core facility activities

Here are some of the key services we provide:

  • Project planning and grant writing;
  • Software testing and development;
  • Data management plan (DMP) and deposition in OpenData repositories;
  • Data analysis;
  • Training.
