Bioinformatics in server room


The bioinformatics group provides an interface between the computational infrastructure of the insitute and the biology performed within the research groups
They provide a data and statistical analysis service as well as developing novel software packages and providing a wide variety of training courses. The group is also responsible for the maintenance of the computational infrastructure for research computing. The group make a number of their services available to external groups and are always keen to take on new challenges. They have extensive experience in the analysis of epigenomics, transcriptomics and other related datasets. They are also able to offer custom software or analysis pipeline development. 

More information about the group can be found on the groups separate web site at This page also provides links to software products developed by the group and training material for their courses. Informal enquires can be made by contacting Simon Andrews.


The group also run a regular series of training courses covering a wide range of bioinformatics topics. External participants are welcome on the courses run at Babraham, and we are able to run off-site courses for other groups if there is sufficient demand. Find upcoming training dates here.
