The Bioinformatics and Applied Genomics develops molecular, genomics and bioinformatics applications relevant to sequencing technologies of all generations, but also develops software and pipelines for the analysis of large-scale datasets (big-data). Serving as a Core Facility, BiGen supports all research groups within HPI providing sequencing services, including the design and the execution of wet-lab assay preparation, the sequencing analysis and the downstream bioinformatics. Equipped with high-end sequencers and state of the art robotics, BiGen Unit also provides public services, both in academia and the pharmaceutical industry.
