The Aims of Bioinformatics
Bioinformatics is the branch of biology that aims to efficiently organize vast amounts of biological data, to develop tools for accomplishing that purpose, and to draw meaningful conclusions from those data sets. This sequencing method can be used to make sense of the genetic information of any living thing, from a single-celled organism to an intricate ecosystem.
Recent technological developments have caused a sudden surge in the use of bioinformatics, making it easier to sequence the human genome (consisting of about 3 billion base pairs) than it ever has been before.
Our Bioinformatics Sequencing Services
At Psomagen, we offer a range of sequencing analysis services, using the sequences of DNA, RNA, or a peptide to understand the unique features of your DNA. Our highly experienced Bioinformatics specialists are dedicated to offering these services with the very best quality and accuracy. Our analytical capabilities using extensive next-generation sequencing (NGS) data include but are not limited to the following:
- High-quality control and assurances for data and statistics
- Discovery of SNPs, InDels, and structural variations including CNVs
- Annotation of variants
- Association analysis
- Gene expression analysis
- Alternative splicing transcripts identification
- Peak analysis (ChiP-Seq)
Applications of Bioinformatics
In the world today, bioinformatics is used to understand the genetic factors that underlie disease, the desirable genetic properties of agricultural species, the distinguishing genetic traits among populations, and so much more. Bioinformatics is being used increasingly in genetic sequencing, medicinal discovery, and even gene expression studies.
More specifically, this tool is useful for finding links between disease and genetic sequences. Therefore, pharmacogeneticists can use this information to alter drugs, vaccines, and medical treatments and tailor them to the DNA of the patients receiving them.
