Bioinformatics Long-term Support (WABI)National facility
SciLifeLab offers bioinformatics long-term support in the format of “embedded bioinformaticians”, senior bioinformaticians working in your project for an extended time, typically 6 – 12 calendar months. This support has been enabled by a generous grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and is predominantly targeting projects that have generated high-throughput data of kinds that can be produced at the SciLifeLab platforms. The facility has state-of the art competence and technical know-how in large-scale sequence data analysis, including transcriptomics, variant detection and de novo genome assembly. Research groups interested in long-term bioinformatics support will have to send in a specific application, please see information in the right side bar.
- All NGS applications. Virtually all kinds of sequencing projects are supported, as well as projects combining sequencing data with data from other SciLifeLab platforms.
- Free of charge. Projects are reviewed by a national committee and selected based on scientific level.
- Long-term support. Senior bioinformaticians working in your project for a period of 6-12 months.
This facility only provides time as a resource. Computer equipment is provided mainly through SNIC.
Examples of technical areas of support:
- Variant calling in model and non-model organisms
- Human exome and whole-genome resequencing
- Differential and allele-specific expression
- De novo genome assembly
- Single-cell analyses
- Integrative analyses of multiple types of "omics" data
