CBiB Bio-informatic Platform

JPEG - 109.6 ko

The team of the Centre de Bioinformatique de Bordeaux (CBiB) intervenes at the border between life sciences and computer science - statistics. Its area of expertise is the collection, integration, cross-referencing and analysis of omics data. The requirement to analyze large volume data quickly and reliably leads CBiB to develop "Big Data" methods. To do this, the CBiB brings together the required skills in bioinformatics and computer science ; the centre is equipped with appropriate computing and storage resources, in line with regional facilities (the Aquitaine Mesocentre for Computing - MCIA), the national Bioinformatics infrastructure (Investissement d’Avenir, Institut Français de Bioinformatique - IFB) and the ELIXIR European Infrastructure.

- “Omics" data analysis and integration
- Development of specific analyses
- Pipeline development and bioinformatics methods
The platform’s expertise is particularly renowned in algorithms, high throughput biological data integration, analysis and visualization. Whether in large projects or for specific expertise, the team has the know-how, equipment and capacity to study the complexity of biological systems.

The services offered by CBiB are as follows :
- Standard and custom analyses of biological data
- Implementation of "Big Data" approaches
- Development and maintenance of biological databases
- Development of the infrastructure and bioinformatics softwares, in particular for NGS data
- Analysis and personalized advices for bioinformatics projects
- Setting up collaborative projects with research teams
- Workshops and training on different bioinformatics thematics
