IGC Bioinformatics Analysis Core

We provide advice, training, computational tools and collaborative expertise to all Institute of Genetics and Cancer researchers.

The facility has a track record in the analysis of novel, high throughput biological datasets, particularly sequencing data, and have co-authored many Institute of Genetics and Cancer publications and grant proposals.

The BAC has three broad aims, which together constitute its mission statement:

  • Support: consultation on and provision of collaborative bioinformatics skills to research programmes across the Institute. 
  • Expertise: development and implementation of effective analysis strategies for common tasks, establishing best practice in Institute data analysis.
  • Training: provision of training resources, instruction and advice to assist Institute users in their own data analysis.

Our primary mandate is to support IGC research. We are able to collaborate on any projects where at least one IGC researcher is involved and the project fits within the IGC remit.
