Our specialist research associates have experience in many different areas of Bioinformatics. In particular we have extensive experience in Neuroscience which presents some unique challenges to investigators Our expertise in experimental design, analysis and use of on line databases and resources, such as the Allen Brain Atlas, can serve to bring an innovative new dimension to your research project.

We support both basic science and clinical research by providing expertise from specialist researchers with experience in both neuroscience and a wide range of bioinformatics analysis methods. We do not process biological samples but will assist in experimental design and identifying appropriate protocols and service providers for sample processing.
