  • The Bioinformatics Core unit provides customized data analysis services and consultation to scientists at BGU and all over Israel from both academia and industry. The aim of the facility is to help scientists advance their research using cutting edge bioinformatics methodologies. The main areas of expertise include the design and analysis of experiments that use genomic technologies (e.g., next-generation sequencing, mass spectrometry proteomics and metabolomics profiling, microarrays, and more), as well as mining and reanalysis of publicly available datasets. In addition, the facility develops software tools for automation of data analysis workflows (NeatSeq-Flow, Microbe-Flow).
