Integrative Bioinformatics Support Group

Services

The Integrative Bioinformatics Support Group provides direct bioinformatics support to scientific research programs empowering intramural research. This support ranges across the entire experimental process from initial design through analyses, reiterative validation, and publication.

Background

The Integrative Bioinformatics Support Group supports the management and analysis of large genomic and epigenomic datasets, including a variety of Next Generation Sequencing data types (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, methyl-seq, etc.). Analysis support options range from one-time assistance with basic bioinformatics tasks, to an embedded support model in which bioinformatics staff provide in-depth longitudinal support with long-term holistic understanding of project or group research goals.

The Integrative Bioinformatics Support Group has implemented specialized workflows — including standardized quality control and assurance pipelines — for the analysis and integration of common data types. These workflows are routinely updated to reflect gold standard practices in bioinformatics and are often customized to specifically tailor output deliverables to meet the particular needs of a given project. The group also enables innovative research through the development of novel tools and pipelines to evaluate, synthesize, and interpret disparate data types in this complicated space.

NIEHS Shared and Core Facilities are available to NIH researchers. Information for staff on utilizing these services may be found on the NIEHS Junction or by contacting the staff below.
