Professor Pål Sætrom from our department, has been appointed Head of the new Bioinformatics core facility (BioCore) established at the Faculty of Medicine (NTNU). BioCore aims to offer researchers in Norway support at any level regarding bioinformatics analysis.
The facility will offer services to support research needs in the interface between bioinformatics and molecular biology. Research on high throughput sequence analysis, gene regulation (miRNA, TF, epigenetics), genome stability, genome variation and gene/protein analysis will be the main focus.
BioCore collaborates with several other core facilities and technology platforms and is a continuation of the FUGE Bioinformatics platform.
