Bioinformatics Core

The IBI Bioinformatics Core provides professional bioinformatics services, including data analysis and consultation to the Penn biomedical research community. The core is also dedicated to build efficient pipelines to handle various next-generation sequencing (NGS) data, generated within our NGS core or elsewhere.

The Bioinformatics Core is also supported by IBI faculty members whose areas of expertise include NGS-related algorithm development, human disease research (diabetes, cancer, Autism, Alzheimer’s disease etc.), functional genomics, statistical genetics, and computational biology. We provide bioinformatics support for grant applications in all biomedical areas by drafting approaches and offering computation resources and expertise for the proposed research.
