The Bioinformatics Core at Mayo Clinic supports investigators in leveraging genomics, proteomics and metabolomics (omics) data to conduct basic and translational research and diagnose and improve the treatment of patients.

Services include:

  • Pre-processing omics data, including several workflows dedicated to next-generation sequencing data analysis
  • Data annotation services critical for first-level interpretation of pre-processed genomics data
  • Data management solutions for the integration of large genomics, proteomics and metabolomics data sets
  • Data collection from internal and external data sources

With more than 40 specialists with master's or doctoral degrees in bioinformatics, the Bioinformatics Core provides expert services to investigators engaged in translational research and personalized medicine, delivering cutting-edge bioinformatics analytical and interpretative support.

Bioinformaticians analyze genomics, proteomics and metabolomics data and report results to investigators. They also implement and maintain the bioinformatics infrastructure needed to execute analytical workflows and manage large omics data sets.

The Bioinformatics Core has its academic home in the Department of Health Sciences Research within the Division of Biomedical Statistics and Informatics at Mayo Clinic and provides services to all Mayo Clinic faculty and staff. Additionally, services are offered to investigators and research collaborators outside Mayo Clinic. For more information, please contact the core.
