Bioinformatics: Data, data everywhere
Modern bioscience is data-driven. Whether dealing with simple binary readouts, for example a single data point from each of thousands of patients being tested for coronavirus, or millions of data points gathered by massively parallel (next-generation) sequencing of a single human genome, you cannot escape the fact that we are inundated with data.
‘Bioinformatics’ is the catch-all term for how we capture, organise, analyse, store and share all that data. At Source BioScience bioinformatics has always been an essential part of our Genomic services and has never been more important than since the arrival of NGS. Today these capabilities continue to be an important, integral part of our services.
While such support comes automatically with our NGS laboratory services, we can also provide stand-alone bioinformatics services to aid in the design and planning of research and clinical trials, and interpretation of their data outputs. Source BioScience offers a free consultation and design service in the first instance. Our team prides itself on a friendly, collegiate approach, supported by a wide selection of tools and packages to suit your scientific and budget requirements.
Whether you need assistance with variant calling for your cancer or inherited disease studies, or perhaps with signalling pathway prediction, based on gene expression and transcriptome analysis, our Bioinformatics team are ready to help you.
