Texas Tech University


The Bioinformatics core facility at the Center for Biotechnology and Genomics provides services in the domains of genomics, proteomics, and general bioinformatics.

The CBG has the unique ability to generate, analyze, and integrate transcriptome and genome level data with proteomic and metabolomic data. The integration of these data with the Center's bioinformatic resources provides powerful discovery tools for understanding biochemical and signaling pathway responses to various challenges. We are excited to offer bioinformatics services at no additional charge to our customers, including data processing, data handling, figure generation, and any additional bioinformatics work that facilitates research publication and strengthen proposed projects.
