Data Analysis and Bioinformatics

The ATG Shared Resource provides the highest-quality bioinformatics analysis of genomics data sets, employing state-of-the-art tools such as custom scripts written in "R". The ATG staff has analyzed data sets for dozens of laboratories and have produced high quality figures for numerous publications and grant applications.

The ATG Facility provides a full range of data analysis services including:Bioinformatics Team

  • Pre-experiment consultation and assistance with experimental design issues related to genomics experiments
  • Customized data analysis using filtering and statistical methods that make use of stringent quality controls
  • Preparation of publication-quality figures for papers or grant applications
  • Storage of data and assistance with up-loading data sets to databases for publication

We specialize in the use of several sophisticated data analysis software packages including:

  • GeneSpring, CLC Bio, SAM
  • R and Bioconductor: a scripting language for customized statistical analyses.

We strongly recommend that all users contact the facility staff before beginning their genomics experiments. We can provide information about the number of replicates that are required, how the DNA or RNA samples should be prepared and what the total cost is likely to be. A few minutes of discussion may save weeks and many dollars later.
