Genomics and Bioinformatics

The main goal of the Genomics and Bioinformatics Laboratory at the IMPPC is to provide the institution with state of the art genomics and bioinformatics technologies to give support to the activities of its researchers. We offer support in experimental design, sample quality control, NGS library preparation and sequencing, microarray assay execution, and bioinformatic data analysis. We specialized in the discovery and typing of novel molecular markers for cancer and other disease prediction, centering on the use of DNA polymorphisms (SNPs and CNVs), differential gene expression (specifically of miRNAs and other non-coding RNAs), and chromatin modifications (DNA methylation), and the generation of predictors based on genomic data that can have an application on cancer preventive medicine.
