Services We Provide

The Bioinformatics Facility provides several data analysis services, particularly on Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) data. The Basic Read Processing (base calling, quality check, trimming of reads, etc.) is provided free of charge for users performing sequencing at the Genomics Facility of USU.

RNA-Seq

Whole transcriptome shotgun sequencing (WTSS), uses next-generation sequencing (NGS) to reveal the presence and quantity of RNA in a biological sample at a given moment. RNA-Seq is used to analyze a changing cellular transcriptome.

Methyl-Seq

Bisulfite sequencing is the use of bisulfite treatment of DNA before routine sequencing to determine the pattern of methylation. DNA methylation was the first discovered epigenetic mark, and remains the most studied.

SNP-Seq

SNP genotyping is the measurement of genetic variations of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) between members of a species. It is a form of genotyping, which is the measurement of more general genetic variation.

ChIP-Seq

In order to analyze protein interactions with DNA, ChIP-seq combines chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) with massively parallel DNA sequencing to identify the binding sites of DNA-associated proteins.

miRNA-Seq

miRNA-seq is the use of next-generation sequencing or massively parallel high-throughput DNA sequencing to sequence microRNAs. miRNA-seq differs from other forms of RNA-seq in that input material is enriched for small RNAs.

Sequence Assembly

Referring to aligning and merging fragments from a longer DNA sequence in order to reconstruct the original sequence. This is needed as DNA sequencing technology cannot read whole genomes in one go.

WELCOME TO USU BIOINFORMATICS CORE FACILITY

Ideas and breakthroughs fueled by computational prediction and next generation sequencing.

Our group has been contributing to different research projects by providing support and expertise in programming and advanced data analysis, focusing primarily on high-throughput genomics technologies. These include microarrays, genotyping, and next-generation sequencing (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, SNP-seq, etc.). We also provide virtual server environments, secure public web portals, a large suite of open source applications, and hands-on tutorials and workshops on a wide variety of informatics topics, as well as custom data analysis and consultation services. We commit to the establishment of research collaborations with scientists from different departments.
