Bioinformatics Support Program

The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program provides access to bioinformatics software and training. This data-centered program provides software for the analysis of high-throughput data such as next generation sequencing data, as well as software to help in the interpretation of the results of these analyses. Additionally, the Library provides access to three high-performance bioinformatics workstations optimized for analysis of high-throughput data. 

What We Do

One-on-one Tutorials

One-on-one tutorials are offered for the bioinformatics analysis tools and databases that are supported by the Bioinformatics Support Program.

High-Performance Computing

Two high-performance workstations are available in the NIH Library and can also be booked for remote use. These computers are dedicated to high-throughput analysis and may be reserved online. There are two Windows 10, 48-64 GB RAM, 8 cores, and 2 TB storage.

Analysis Tools and Databases

Resources cover both raw data analysis such as next generation sequencing data and further refinement of these results using pathway analysis, variant filtering, or other methods.

Training

Vendor-led training for NIH Library-licensed bioinformatics resources are offered through the Bioinformatics Support Program.
