Bioinformatics Core


Overview of the Core

The VGN Bioinformatics Core supports network investigators whose research requires biological information data analysis. Specifically, we assist users of the VGN Proteomics Facilities and VGN network investigators in experimental design, expression analysis, functional analysis, data storage and publishing, and manuscript and grant proposal preparation. You may find specific services offered listed under the Request Services tab.


VGN Bioinformatics Core members also participate in regional and national projects to promote the sharing of research resources, including the VGN Searchable Core Facilities Database, a free global interface for sharing scientific resources.
