Group size: ~ 10

Environment: Bioinformatics Research, Data Analysis, Application Development

Tools: principally NGS sequence analysis: Alignment, variant detection, expression levels/ differential expression. Exome-Seq, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, methylation (RRBS), gene array panels, de novo assembly, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics.

Pertinent hardware info: unix based servers, access to cluster computing

Training: We only train through seminars. We are planning on developing hands-on workshops and perhaps individualized training models.

Bioinformatics support model: Primarily supported by Recharge for services. Also through support by the UMMS Office of Research.
