BioCore is a team that develops tools for the researchers in UMMS and their collaborators.

In the last years sequencing has become the readout of choice for many assays ranging from transcriptional annotation and quantification (RNA-Seq), protein-nucleic acid interactions (ChIP and CLIP sequencing), genotyping through exome or whole genome sequencing. While allowing for unbiased, genome-wide data generation, the analysis of this data requires significant computational expertise and is often not carried out by those who generate it.


The Bioinformatics Core mission is two-fold:

1) To evaluate, select, and implement when needed the best of breed computational solutions for the analysis of biological data.  

2) To allow those who generate the data to be able to analyze it using state of the art methods by reducing the computational expertise required to apply these methods.



Upcoming Biocore Events

  • April 03, 2015


    Hosted By: Biocore
    Location: AS4-2069
    10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    The bioinformatics core hosts a data-ton (data analysis session) every other Friday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. The format is to briefly introduce you to the available pipelines followed by analysis of your dataset.
