Bioinformatics Platform of Lyon – PRABI-Doua

The PRABI platform is part of the National Bioinformatics Network (RENABI). It comprises two components: PRABI-Doua and PRABI-Analysis and data modelling, both of which specialise in the analysis of genomic, transcriptomic and metagenomics data, with a strong emphasis on the ecology and evolutionary aspects.

Equipement
PRABI-Doua / LBBE is equipped with a 14-node, 576 core computing cluster totalling 3 TB of memory. Storage capacity: 130 TB. Part of this resource is made available through the distributed infrastructure project for biology, GRISBI (French computational Grid).

Main achievements
Availability of biological databases: ACNUC (sequences), HOVERGEN, HOGENOM (gene families), PRODOM (protein domain families)
Key tools: QUERY (database interrogation), Seaview (alignment and phylogeny), ADE4 (R package for data analysis).
PRABI-Doua is a key player in the ANCESTROME project.
PRABI-Analyses and data modelling is often used in the case of RNA, for microarray data analysis, annotation and data analysis of high-throughput sequence data (genomic and metagenomics data).
Training courses in phylogeny, statistics with R, NGS data analysis.

Labels
The PRABI platform is IBiSA certified.
