The Computational Biology Platform of the Biodonostia Health Research Institute provides service to departments of the Donostialdea IHO and the life science community in general. The service transverses all the stages for good research practices, from the experimental design, data analysis, statistical analysis, visualization, preparation of research publication, answers to reviewers and omics data deposition in public databases.
The platform offers data analysis support for both next generation sequencing (NGS) and microarrays:
- Next generation sequencing (NGS):
The Platform has developed workflows and programs to analyze large-scale biological datasets. The analysis includes data quality assessment, comprehensive analysis, results interpretation, communication and presentation in meaningful formats. The analysis might also involve development of tailored algorithms for some projects.
- Gene expression.
- MicroRNA expression.
- DNA methylation.
- Copy Number Variation (CNV).
The Computational Biology Platform is specialized in integrating diverse data sets, such as genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and biomedical imaging information.
