The Scientific Computing Facility provides a unified service to assist researchers in the tackling of scientific questions involving computational analysis, data handling and image processing.  The nature of modern biological research and the movement from small scale studies to analysis of data on a global scale (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics) requires significant computational analysis and expertise across a wide variety of fields. Modern studies often produce multiple types of 'omics data and may also include high throughput imaging data, thus requiring techniques ranging from biological sequences analysis through to image processing/analysis.  The Scientific Computing Facility combines expertise in bioinformatics data analysis, bioimage analysis and software development to produce robust workflows, algorithms and tools for the analysis, exploration and visualization of large complex datasets of mixed datatypes.



Bioinformatics Team

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.

Scientific Software Development Team

The scientific software development team designs, constructs, and deploys scientific applications within the MPI-CBG. It also ensures that software created within the institute is of the highest quality.

BioImage Informatics Team

The BioImage informatics team provides informatics tools and training to support the analysis of images in biological studies.
