Knowledge-Base Development

We develop custom knowledge bases of diseases. Intense literature scanning is done by subject matter specialists and significant research hypothesis, claims and their evidence is curated in a semantic-web based platform for enhanced searches and interoperability with other knowledge repositories. All claims are linked to relevant proteins, organisms and cells for easy-to-use lookups.

Bioinformatics Training

We provide hands-on bioinformatics training sessions to small groups of researchers. Topics include basic statistics, design of experiments, micro-array analysis, next-generation sequencing analysis, and use of common bioinformatics tools, etc.  Content and level will be tailored to the audience. Training room, equipment and materials will be provided.
