The Bioinformatics Shared Resource can assist you with the design and analysis of next-generation sequencing and microarray experiments, including data visualization, data analysis, and access to software and computing resources. A variety of analysis software tools are available through this facility, including Ingenuity Pathway Analysis, Partek Genomics Suite, GeneSifter, USeq, IGB, and Bioconductor. This facility’s staff can also assist with the preparation of figures, grant applications, upload or access to public databases, and design of custom genome captures or microarrays. Our services are available to any University of Utah researchers.

The Bioinformatics Shared Resource is funded by the Huntsman Cancer Institute and the University of Utah Health Sciences Center.
