Computational Biology Consulting Core

Overview of Services

The Computational Biology Consulting Core (CBCC) offers state-of-the-art computational biology services to biomedical researchers at the Johns Hopkins University. We offer comprehensive analyses of sequencing data for a variety of genomics and sequencing-based experiments. We can handle most types of data, including Illumina, PacBio, Oxford Nanopore, 454, and Sanger reads, and we have experience with a variety of sequencing protocols (RNA-seq, CHiP-seq, whole-genome and whole-exome sequencing, metagenomics, etc).

Examples of analyses:

  • Transcriptomics (bulk and single cell RNA-seq)
  • Metagenomics
  • ChIP-seq and ATAC-seq analysis
  • SNP and structural variant detection
  • Genome assembly
  • Sequence alignment
  • Custom genomics applications

 For all projects, we can arrange to transfer the data directly from the sequencing facility to our computers. We use best practice bioinformatics solutions and can work with you to design custom algorithms and analyses as needed. 


Sample pricing for basic RNA-seq and 16S rRNA analyses is listed here. For changes in protocol and all other services please contact us.
