Malik Alawi @ University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf
The Bioinformatics Core of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf was established in 2011 to serve as a focal point for applied bioinformatics in Hamburg. The unit puts its main emphasis on the analyses of high-throughput sequencing data and related integrative analysis tasks. Its comprehensive range of services is primarily aimed at supporting clinicians and researchers on site, but its expertise is likewise available for externals seeking support for their bioinformatics projects.
We contribute to the de.NBI training program by offering courses in bioinformatics. Our goal is to enable researchers without a background in bioinformatics to conduct and to comprehend bioinformatics analyses. Therefore, we focus on the hands-on exercises and real world examples from medical and biological research. Topics covered center around the analysis of high-throughput sequencing data as well as the Linux operating system and scripting.
