Bioinformatics Core

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

The Bioinformatics Core is part of the Bioinformatics Program within Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine and has its academic home in the Division of Biomedical Statistics and Informatics.

The Bioinformatics Core includes more than 40 specialists with M.S. or Ph.D. degrees in bioinformatics. The core provides services to investigators engaged in translational research and personalized medicine, delivering cutting-edge bioinformatics analytical and interpretative support.

Bioinformaticians in the core pre-process 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.
