Bioinformatics community

The core bioinformatics projects of Nice-Sophia-Antipolis platform revolves mainly around a few key areas:

  • ensure the sustainability of data generated on the platform,
  • develop new tools to help analysing the data,
  • ensure a technological monitoring of recent bioinformatics tools to the benefit of our collaborators,

In order to achieve those goals we have setup since 2003 the platform information system, called Mediante, dedicated to the management of orders and data produced on the platform. This information system can now effectively handle all the data that we are procuding throughout a microarray experiment or high-throughput sequencing. The analysis part is mainly delegated to complementary tools such as R/Bioconductor.
