Bioinformatics

Background

With the latest technological innovations in Life Science research and an increasing focus on high-throughput technologies such as next generation sequencing, ultra-high density arrays and structural analysis, very large datasets are now created in a matter of hours. Because of this, data analysis has become one of the biggest challenges in biological research, together with its correct management, storage and integration.

Bioinformatics is a rapid developing field that combines computer programming with in-depth biological knowledge, statistics, mathematics and engineering. It has become an integral part of research studies in all fields of Life Sciences such as molecular biology, genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, metabolomics, proteomics, metagenomics and systems biology.

Such large datasets require specialized tools and expertise for a correct and in-depth analysis. In many companies, a lack of the right expertise and know-how has become an important source of delays and costs.

Our Approach

Our consultants assist our customers with their needs in data-analysis, algorithm development, pipeline scripting, automation and data integration. They can help with the development of custom solutions to fit our customer’s  requirements, infrastructure and protocols. In addition to a high degree of technical skills – where Python and R are quickly becoming the industry standards – they bring their own biological expertise in microbiology, cancer biology, human and animal health diagnostics, plant biology and much more.

During their projects our consultants bring their own expertise with the extensive support of the entire BISC Global team and industry or academic experts.

The BISC Global consultants combine great expertise in bioinformatics with excellent communication and project management skills. To ensure a close working relationship with our customers, our consultants will work from the customer’s offices during their project, Regular follow-up meetings between the customer, the consultant and the BISC Global managers and experts ensures total customer satisfaction.
