The ANU Bioinformatics Consultancy (ABC) is a core service facility, which together with the Biomolecular Resource Facility (BRF) form the Canberra node of Bioplatforms Australia genomics infrastructure capability (NCRIS funded). Since October 2018 the ABC has been integrated with the Biological Data Science Institute at ANU, leveraging expertise in statistics and machine learning for biological data.
Our goal is to enable biologists in understanding and working with data that might otherwise seem overwhelming or incomprehensible. We develop and run the latest processing and analysis pipelines, and operate dedicated bioinformatics computational hardware, which is available for the local bioinformatics community. The ABC offers consultation, custom programming and analysis, as well as training in aspects of current bioinformatics techniques and skills.
