At the EPFL Bioinformatics and Biostatistics Core Facility (BBCF) we provide research labs with extensive support in bioinformatics and biostatistics. Our main competences are in management and analysis of genomic data, mathematical modelling and statistical analysis of quantitative biological data. We provide support for the analysis of large or complex data sets, the development of data management pipelines for new high-throughput technologies (e.g. high-density arrays, high-throughput sequencing), and the statistical planning in complex experimental designs. We also help researchers in the areas of mining public data, designing and setting up local databases, building mathematical models from experimental data and running simulations to evaluate a model.
