VGN Bioinformatics Core


The VGN Bioinformatics Core provides bioinformatics support for life sciences researchers throughout Vermont. We meet with researchers to discuss the scope of projects, develop plans to meet research needs and then carry out the bioinformatics work from initial data acquisition through publication and support for new grant submissions.

Research Support

  • Bioinformatics consultations
  • Data analysis (see Services tabs at top of page)
  • Data storage, transfer and publishing
  • Publication, presentation, grant support
