Statistics and Bioinformatics Research Group (EstBioinfo)

The Statistics and Bioinformatics Research Group has as its main objective the research, development and application of statistical methods in problems arising in the interface between bioinformatics and statistics. Our initial interest was the analysis of "uni-omic" data such as expression microarrays. Later we have evolved to be interested in problems and the methods for the integrative analysis of the omics data. We are currently collaborating on various projects of this kind in fields such as neuroscience, immunology or metabolomics. We work together and each of us are part of one or more other groups such as the GRBio Research Group a consolidated research group of the Generalitat de Catalunya formed by UB and UPC researchers, the Biomarkers in Nutrition and Metabolomic Research Group at the Faculat de Farmacia of the University of Barcelona and nutrition and the Statistics an Bioinformatics Unit (UEB) in Vall d'Hebron Research Institute Foundation (VHIR).

Bioinformatics services offered

  • Omics data analysis

    We provide support in the analysis of simple to more complex omics data such as microarrays, RNAseq or epigenomic data.

  • Training in Statistical and Omics Data Analysis

    We teach R courses on a regular basis (Summer school) as well as ad-hoc bioinformatics courses in topics such as RNA-seq or Integrative Omics Data Analysis.
