Bergen node

Head: Inge Jonassen.

The Bergen node is organized at the Computational Biology Unit (CBU), University of Bergen (UiB). We provide broad services of bio­informatics, mainly on high-throughput omics data analysis. That includes high-throughput sequencing data (i.e. Exome-seq, RNA-seq and ChIP-seq), gene expression microarrays and quantitative proteomics data­sets. We also provide consulting on planning and design of high-throughput technology based experiments. The biological topics in focus are based on our collaborators’ research areas and these include medical research at Haukeland University Hospital, Bergen, and marine biology at the Department of Biology, UiB and the Marine Research Institute (IMR). Furthermore we develop bioinformatics analysis infrastructure including e.g. Galaxy workflows, as part of the Norwegian e-infrastructure for Life Science (NeLS).
