Bioinformatics (HUSAR, W180) at the German Cancer Research Center
Bioinformatics (HUSAR) is a unit within the Core Facility Genomics Proteomics that offers Bioinformatics support for the scientists of the German Cancer Research Center. We are specialised mainly on sequence analysis ranging from "traditional" sequence analyis (like alignments, sequence annotation, structure analysis, etc.) to the analysis of deep-sequencing experiments (genomic sequencing, smallRNA, ChipSeq, etc.).
We offer our service in conjunction with other parts of our Core Facility (especially with W190, High-Throughput Sequencing) and with the IT Core Facility (W310) maintaining our HUSAR server.
Our main activities are:
- maintaining HUSAR, a large collection of Bioinformatics tools to analyse sequence (or sequence-related) data
- implementing new tools into Husar that are of general interest for scientists at DKFZ
- supporting scientists in the analysis of their data
- developing new tools and pipelines for analysing biological data (very often in collaboration with or on request of scientists at DKFZ)
