The Bioinformatics Core at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging supports collaborations with research laboratories both inside and outside the Institute.

We have expertise in biostatistics and bioinformatics including:

  • Next-generation sequencing data manipulation: read-mapping, normalization, statistical comparisons between samples
  • Genome assembly and annotation
  • Applied statistics for high-throughput screen datasets (mutant libraries, drug libraries, etc.)
  • Sequence analyses: protein and regulatory motif searches, inference of function of natural variants
  • Experimental study design for adequate power

If you are interested in collaboration please contact us.
