Medical Biometry and Statistical Bioinformatics
The Core Facility Medical Biometry and Statistical Bioinformatics, positioned in the Department of Medical Statistics, is a core facility of the University Medical Center Göttingen. The task of this Core Facility is the biometrical and bioinformatical support of the institutions, working groups and Ph.D. students of the UMG with the planning and analysis of scientific studies and experiments. The bioinformatical support comprises particularly the analysis of microarray, proteomics and next-generation sequencing data. Depending on the available capacities, the support can also be used by other institutions of the Georg-August-University Göttingen as well as non-university research institutions at the Göttingen Research Campus.
This website gives you a short overview on the services of the Core Facility and provides you our contact informations. Further informations can be found in our user regulations, and our catalogue of services and charges.
ServiceangeboteThe Core Facility can consult you regarding following problems:
- Experimental Planing, Sample Size Planing
- Biometrical and bioinformatics concepts for funding applications
- Data management
- Statistical analysis of medical and biological data
- Bioinformatics of medical and biological data (e.g. from Microarrays, Proteomics oder NextGen-Sequencing)
- Analysis of sequencing data (e.g. RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, Methyl-Seq, Metagenomic Data, Copy-Number-Changes)
- Methods and software development
- Interpretation of results
- Software consulting
- Visualisation and representation of results
For these problems we provide the following key services:
In general, the Core Facility recommends its early involvement (i.e. already in the planning phase). An early involvement enables an exact matching between experimental design and biometrical or bioinformatical data analysis. Serious mistakes in the planning of experiments can thus be avoided.
Please apply for project-related support by using our webform. One of our consultants will then contact you to make an appointment.
Depending on the size of the support, the Core Facility (on behalf of the Operation Division G1-1 'Research and General Academic Affairs') has to raise charges. These charges are solely used to refinance our service and get transferred back to the research budget of the UMG.
CIP-room user regulations have to be followed.
The coached working can be visited without prior appointment. The registration takes place on-site (Humboldtallee 32 CIP-room or LRC). calenders. Please check for changes in the opening hours and coaching times before your visit.
