NBIS and CASP – feeling lost in data? We are here to help
May 16, 2023 @ 12:00 – 13:00 CEST
In the frame of the “SciLifeLab Site Umeå / KBC Infrastructure Seminar Series”, the seminars will be organised every second Tuesday during spring 2023. The seminars will be held in a hybrid format IRL in Glasburen, KBC, and online via Zoom. Learn more about the seminar series and Schedule for Spring 2023 here.
On May 16th, 12:00-13:00, SciLifeLab Site Umeå / KBC Infrastructure Seminar Series presents:
NBIS and CASP – feeling lost in data? We are here to help!
Jeanette Tångrot, NBIS expert and Senior research engineer at the Department of Molecular Biology

The Computational Analytics Support Platform (CASP) is a data analytics service at Umeå University, while the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS) is a distributed national research infrastructure providing bioinformatics support, infrastructure and training. In this seminar, we will describe the different types of services provided by both CASP and NBIS, helping researchers make the most out of their data.
CASP is a co-funded KBC infrastructure that primarily supports, but also trains life scientists in the analysis of experimental data using advanced data-driven tools and strategies. We focus on the analysis of data from a wide range of technologies including, but not limited to, downstream omics (metabolomics/proteomics), spectroscopy and imaging. Since the platform was launched in 2021, CASP has supported multiple researchers across departments and faculties convert complex data into meaningful biological and chemical interpretations.
NBIS is the SciLifeLab bioinformatics platform and the Swedish node in ELIXIR. NBIS has staff at six sites, including Umeå. We provide expertise in most areas of bioinformatics, including omics analysis, genome assembly/annotation, image analysis and biostatistics. We provide weekly online drop-in sessions and free consultation meetings, as well as hands-on project support ranging from assistance with smaller tasks to long-term engagement. We also offer support in data management and systems development, such as tools, pipelines, and interactive websites. In addition, we provide both introductory and advanced training events.
