Welcome to the VBCF BioComp Facility

The Bioinformatics & Scientific Computing (BioComp) facility provides unique expertise and services in the areas of bioinformatics and scientific computing to academic and industrial researchers.

Data analysis and scientific programming

We offer data analysis services for next-generation sequencing data and develop innovative and intuitive software solutions for biological experiments requiring image and video processing as well as hardware-related programming. Our specific data management and processing tools help researchers to translate biological results into new insights.

We have a small OwnCloud instance for sharing data with our customers. Only BioComp members are allowed to log in.

Knowledge sharing


Our facility is strongly committed to the sharing and disseminating knowledge about computational biology. To this end BioComp offers trainings and consultations in the areas of bioinformatics, statistics and programming.

Log in to our hands-on R trainings. Please note that this service is active only when a training course is running.

Knowledge Hub

Researchers can ask questions online from BioComp experts and other computational biologists on campus using our Knowledge Hub.
