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 are offered for the bioinformatics analysis tools and databases that are supported by the Bioinformatics Support Program.
Three high-performance workstations are available in the NIH Library. These computers are dedicated to high-throughput analysis and may be reserved online. Two have Windows 10, 48-64 GB RAM, 8 cores, 2 TB storage, and one has Red Hat Linux 6, 512 GB RAM, 28 cores, and 24 TB storage.
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.
Basic bioinformatics classes using open source software and public databases, as well as vendor-led training for NIH Library-licensed bioinformatics resources are offered through the Bioinformatics Support Program.
