Recognising the need for strong expertise in the field of bioinformatics and Big Data analytics, Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) has established the Bioinformatics Lab. The main focus of the Lab is the analysis and integration of genome, transcriptome, microbiome and other omics data with epidemiological, clinical, as well as environmental and lifestyle information in the context of personalised medicine, which aims at tailoring the diagnostics and therapy to individuals' needs.
How it works
1. Bioinformatics consulting: you approach us with your research idea, we discuss the best suitable experimental design, data generation, analyses and visualisation practices, answering particular questions related to bioinformatics, statistics or integrative multi-omics data mining. 2. Data collection/generation: you perform research and collect and or generate the data, as discussed in 1. Bioinformatics consulting. 3. Data analysis and visualisation: we perform or assist you in performing (as has been agreed upon during 1. Bioinformatics consulting) data analysis and visualisation for your particular research project and data sets at hand. 4. Results interpretation and hypothesis generation: the domain expert (you or a person named by you) performs the clinical and/or biological interpretation of the data analysis results and hypothesis generation. 5. Experimental validations: you perform in vitro and/or in vivo experiments to validate the hypothesis. 6. Scientific writing: we perform or assist you in performing (as has been agreed upon during 1. Bioinformatics consulting) the scientific writing or reviewing of the bioinformatics part in your grant application and/or scientific publications.
