Bioinformatics Services

Group leader

Zoltan Hegedus

Most biologists today need some kind of assistance in analyzing the data gained from high-throughput investigations and in keeping up with the new bioinformatics analysis methods. Bioinformatics Group as the member of the Core Facilities of HUN-REN BRC offers bioinformatics consulting services for HUN-REN BRC researchers, participates in solving the arising bioinformatics problems, and provides custom bioinformatics software solutions. Most of these support activities are done in a cooperative manner which resulted in an extended scientific collaborative network around the group over the years.

Our group played a key role in establishing the biocomputing infrastructure of the institute. We have developed HUN-REN BRC BioNet, an HTTP-based intranet resource, which is accessible from any of the over four hundred PCs and workstations in the laboratories. un-REN BRC BioNet's tools include:

  • Library information and online access to scientific journals

  • Institutional citation database

  • Scientific Toolbox: hundreds of pages with useful practical information for researchers like periodic table, fact sheets about isotopes, vectors, restriction sites, etc.

  • A collection of more than a thousand WWW links of biological interest
