The Bioinformatics Unit was created to respond to the growing demand for the handling and analysis of data obtained mainly from new massive sequencing platforms (Next-Generation Sequencing, NGS).
Its main functions are:
- Providing the necessary support for the analysis of NGS results.
- Monitoring the servers of the sequencing platforms, the computer cluster and the data storage system.
- The unit also aims to train and collaborate with its users in the use and development of adequate bioinformatic tools for each case.
