Bioinformatics for Proteomics (BioInfra.Prot)

  » de.NBI-Services offered by BioInfra.Prot

  » de.NBI-Training offered by BioInfra.Prot


The service center BioInfra.Prot is a joint initiative of two partners: the "Medical Bioinformatics" research unit of the Medizinisches Proteom-Center of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and the "Department of Bioanalytics" of the Leibniz-Institut für Analytische Wissenschaften - ISAS - e.V. in Dortmund. Both groups have deep and longstanding experience with tools, standards and analyses in the field of proteomics. This partnership enables synergies to be maximized in order to provide a broad range of services to the German proteomics community.


BioInfra.Prot provides consulting services regarding statistics and bioinformatics for proteomics as well as analysis of proteomics data and statistical analysis within cooperations or as service. Proteomics software tools are offered in a consistent and user-oriented way. BioInfra.Prot provides data standardization and conversion services for proteomics data sets and result lists that are to be uploaded into public repositories or submitted to journals. Furthermore, the service center offers the usage of its high-performance hardware infrastructure, on which additionally toolbox sharing is supplied, i.e. access to pre-installed proteomics tools, developed by the center as well as free third-party software. To increase the performance of targeted proteomics approaches, a quality database is generated, which contains confirmed high quality MS-spectra of peptides for download.


Proteomics tools and workflows, which are developed by the members of BioInfra.Prot, are maintained and further adapted to the requirements of the users. For the dissemination of the knowledge on bioinformatics for proteomics, tool trainings, bioinformatics for proteomics courses, statistical trainings and courses concerning standard formats and conversion tools are offered regularly.
