UVM Bioinformatics Shared Resource

Overview of Services

The objective of the Bioinformatics Shared Resource is to provide investigators with access to quality analysis services that will produce accurate, reproducible, and informative results efficiently and in a manner that quickly leads the results to publication, application to basic science and translational research questions, and/or preliminary data in support of additional funding. 

Our bioinformatics services include genomic sequence and expression data analysis, protein function, and systems biology.  We use publicly available and commercial software for quality assessment, sequence alignment, calling sequence differences, identifying genomic intervals based on alignments, counting reads based on alignments and genomic intervals, quantifying expression, microbiome and phylogenetics, and exploratory multivariate analysis.

Our analysis services include statistical model development and application, as well as hosting workshops and consulting on interpretation.

Our publication services include writing methods text for papers, editing manuscripts, responding to reviewer questions, and depositing data in public databases.
