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 other sequencing-based experiments. We can handle most types of sequencing data, including Illumina, PacBio, 454, and Sanger reads, and we have experience with a variety of sequencing protocols (RNA-seq, Chip-seq, whole-genome sequencing, whole-exome sequencing, etc).


Examples of analyses:

  • Transcriptome assembly (RNA-seq)
  • Metagenomics
  • Differential expression
  • ChIP-seq analysis
  • Genome assembly
  • Sequence alignment
  • SNP and structural variant detection

 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.
