ITMAT Bioinformatics Facility



Research Projects

Research at the Bioinformatics Facility is focused in the area of proteomics and translational research. To that end we have developed the Empirical Bayes Protein identification algorithm (EBP) for protein determination from shotgun proteomics experiments. Another focus of the facility is user-centered design in the bioimedical research space.

The Bioinformatics Facility has a variety of IT infrastructure to facilitate informatics development for high-throughput proteomics and lipidomics experiments. These include centralized storage and back-up of vital experimental data; a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) for annotation of experiments and data management; and independent high-throughput compute cluster facilities.
