The bioinformatics team assists MPI-CBG scientists with a wide range of bioinformatics data analysis tasks. Services range from small scale single gene or protein characterization up to global studies involving deep sequencing technologies. The Bioinformatics team provides high-profile bioinformatics support to advance biological research. We develop custom-based bioinformatics tools and provide an integrated bioinformatics-tools platform for non-expert users.
