Need help analyzing your “omics” data? Check out the Emory Integrated Computational Core (EICC). As one of the Emory Integrated Core Facilities, the Emory Integrated Computational Core is supported by Emory School of Medicine. During the COVID-19 crisis, the EICC continues to provide all services remotely. The team is available for analysis of data sets for manuscripts and grant submissions, as well as consultation on projects.

The core offers a suite of bioinformatics and computational services in great demand by Emory investigators. All methods are fully documented on the EICC website. Available analysis services include:

  • RNA sequencing
  • Single-cell RNAseq
  • Whole-genome sequencing
  • Whole-exome sequencing
  • SNP Genotyping
  • Proteomics – Label Free Quantification
  • ATAC-seq
  • 16S amplicon
  • Shotgun metagenomic

For especially large data sets, the EICC is able to leverage Amazon Web Services to handle the computing needs of any sized project. In addition to data analysis services, the EICC provides computational support to researchers. This includes low-cost data storage services, LabKey data management service accounts, Galaxy analysis platform accounts and assistance with Amazon Web Services training.

About Emory Integrated Core Facilities

The Emory Integrated Core Facilities help Emory investigators use the latest technologies in support of their research in order to fuel discovery at Emory University. “The platforms in our core facilities are generating massive amounts of data and enable our investigators to pursue important scientific problems. The challenge lies in analyzing and making sense of these data in a rigorous and reproducible framework. This is where the EICC team, applying defined, documented workflows can really make a difference for Emory investigators,” said Michael E. Zwick, PhD, associate vice president for research in the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center and associate dean of research in the Emory School of Medicine.
