The platform activity at NTNU is co-localized with the Bioinformatics Core Facility (BioCore). The associated research group is mainly working on gene regulation, large-scale genomics towards cancer research and population biobanks (HUNT), and prokaryote genomics. Our collaborators include the biomedical and the biotech community, as well as private industry. The group develops tools for microRNA target prediction, non-coding RNA gene prediction, analysis of regulatory regions, peak finding in ChIP-seq data for transcription factors, and integrated handling and analysis of genomic data in biobanks. The platform also develops and implements specific pipelines for analysing sequencing data, e.g. from RNA-sequencing, micro-RNA or other non-coding RNA experiments, and analysis of exome sequencing or whole genome sequencing data. The Trondheim node also has competence on sequencing data from prokaryotic genomes and metagenomic sequencing data.
