Bioinformatics and Biostatistics

Experts to guide you from study design to data generation, management, analysis and interpretation    

The SICHH Arithmetics Facility is dedicated to provide expertise and solutions to our customers and partners in bioinformatics, biostatistics and Omics data analysis. Our specialists coordinate and support experimental design to ensure the feasibility and the success of various types of projects in human health. Our staff scientists implement and develop softwares applications and state-of-the-art analysis workflows for processing genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes and metabolomes. Our facility members tightly interact with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) to offer the best infrastructure for data analysis.

Technological advances are continuous in the fields of genomics and proteomics. Life sciences, in general, and human health, in particular, are one of the biggest generators of large datasets, mainly as a result of these recent and rapid technological advances. Data dimensions and data complexity are a big challenge for bioinformaticians today. The specialists of our Arithmetics Facility constantly identify and implement new protocols and procedures for data processing, with the aim to enhance experimental design and optimize current techniques used for data generation, analysis, storage and interpretation.

Our bioinformatics and biostatistics services can be used for various types of applications. Some examples are given below

  • Resequencing
  • SV/CNV detection
  • Population statistics
  • De novo assembly
  • Differential gene expression
  • Pathway analyses
  • Microbiome composition

But our experts remain at your disposal to provide the best strategy to handle your NGS projects.
