Bioinformatic Analysis

Our bioinformatics team combines in-house scripts with externally available software to establish pipelines and standard operating procedures for the different kinds of high-throughput data generated in our labs (e.g. ATAC-seq, SPATIaL-seq, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, microarray, and DNA methylation). We also develop ad hoc analyses for specific questions of interest to the center and its collaborators, integrating results from such pipelines with publicly available functional genomics data, with the goal of discovering new insights into complex genetic diseases. In addition, our team has developed and maintains an internal relational database which tracks both bench and in silico work from our center and provides a user-friendly interface to upload and query our data.
