Bioinformatics (BioCore)

Core facility

Bioinformatics (BioCore)

Bioinformatics core facility's mission is to offer researchers in Norway support at any level regarding bioinformatics analysis.  BioCore offers services to support your research needs in the interface between bioinformatics and molecular biology with focus on high throughput sequence analysis, gene regulation (miRNA, TF, epigenetics), genome stability, genome variation (SNPs) and prokaryote gene/protein analysis.

More about our services

BioCore assists researchers in three different ways

  • Customer support/consultancy: e.g. to give advice on bioinformatics procedures, methods and resources.
  • Technical assistance: e.g. installation of software/databases and simple programming tasks and bioinformatical analyses.
  • Research collaboration: requests that require an effort beyond technical assistance/consultancy will be set up as a research collaboration. Funding for collaborative research performed by core facility partners must be provided unless otherwise agreed. The result of joint research shall be published with joint authorship.

The core facility collaborates with several other core facilities and technology platforms and is a continuation of the FUGE Bioinformatics platform.
