The John Curtin School of Medical Research Stores Building 131, Garran Road Acton, ACT 2601 AustraliaThe Genome Discovery Unit (GDU) provides custom pipeline development and analysis of high-throughput DNA sequencing results. Our bioinformaticians are available to advise on best practice for standard processing of sequencing data and are versed in a number of key technologies: Processing data from the three major sequencing platforms (Roche 454, Illumina and SOLiD) Sequence data pre-processing (adapter clipping, quality trimming) Alignment to reference genomes De novo assembly Programming in a wide range of languages. We offer limited entry workshops covering important aspects of bioinformatics and data handling: Linux for biologists Statistics for next-generation sequencing Illumina data processing. GDU staff members provide (below-cost) consultancy to ANU groups for bioinformatics projects, including (no-cost) assistance with writing the bioinformatics component of grant applications for work planned to be done through the GDU. The GDU can develop custom pipelines, or provide services which piggy-back on existing pipelines. This service includes figures and visualisation tools for publications. Examples of publications from pipelines developed include: Murine SNP detection from exome capture (Yabas M., The CE. et al. Nature Immunology, 2011). ChIP-seq (Soboleva T et al, A unique H2A histone variant occupies the transcriptional start site of active genes, Nature Structural Biology, 2011). The staff of the GDU receive academic mentoring from two bioinformatic research groups at JCSMR.
The Contract Research Map is owned and maintained by Scientist.com. It was created to help researchers in the life sciences identify and connect with contract research organizations (CROs) based on geography. Updated nightly, this map features all of the available CROs within our network, so you can order services with a few clicks. Click on a specific country, scroll on the map itself or type into the search bar at the top—there are many ways to find the location and suppliers that you’re looking for. From Argentina to New Zealand, use this map to connect with a CRO near you.
We believe that every researcher across the world should be able to connect with the thousands of global CROs that exist and have the opportunity to work together. Like many industries,the life science supply chain has been disrupted over the last year. But there are many other circumstances such as international customs regulations or sensitive shipping times that create limitations around which countries are feasible to partner with. Sometimes, finding a CRO based in a country that best suits your research needs is imperative. We hope this contract research map allows you to find the right partner in the right place at the right time.
