The TAU Bioinformatics unit deals with a wide range of Bioinformatics topics, including genomics and high-throughput and structural biology. Our mission is to consult to various researchers using the skills we developed for more than a decade. Our main collaborations are with the biomed community at TAU and related hospitals, exact sciences and any researcher interested in Bioinformatics. In addition, we consult to Bio-Tech companies (by contracts through Ramot). Many collaboration projects are being published in scientific articles.
Questions related to various genomics and structure biology topics, such as high-throughput experiments, gene regulation, gene functional annotations, pathways, protein modeling, mutation analysis, phylogeny, etc. are routinely being addressed and answered. Often, questions of genomics origin are directed to structural biology answers and vise versa. In addition, the TAU Bioinformatics unit collaborates as PIs in grant applications.
Moreover, the unit organizes every year a series of workshops, based on understanding and using Bioinformatics tools, which are performed in the PC room, free and open to all.
Our mission is to provide Bioinformatics solution to all reaserch issues. We believe that Bioinformatics can be useful for everyone to solve biological questions, and therefore, organize the workshops and spend time guiding researchers. We spend much efforts in original and intuitive presentation of results, explained by deep discussions with researchers. We aim at broad vision and integration of biological systems, and willing to share our experience with collaborators, in order to produce good science.
