Welcome to Bioinformatics and Biostatistics core facility



Mission statement

BiBs core facility develops user-friendly, state of the art epigenomics analysis protocols. We also maintain access to a local computing cluster and provide the teams of UMR7216 lab a variety of bioinformatic related services such as technology monitoring, project-specific analyses and user-tailored, on-demand training.

Our aims

  • Provide access to computing resources devoted to NGS analysis.
  • Maintain and disseminate tools, pipelines and databases developed by users (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq or ATAC-seq analysis, Ribosome profiling, etc.)
  • Install and maintain containerized version of NGS tools.
  • Develop analyses workflows (Snakemake and NextFlow).
  • Promote collaboration and exchange of knowledge.
  • Organize training.
