Investigation and comparison of normal and abnormal metabolisms are critical for nutrition and obesity research. One of the approaches to studying metabolism is to conduct metabolomics and systems biology studies. Generally, researchers use two types of metabolomics methods, metabolic profiling and targeted metabolomics. Both methods usually generate complex data. As a result, computational algorithms and informatics capability are needed to process data in order to assign biological meaning.
The NORC works with the following research partners to support bioinformatics:
UNC-Charlotte Bioinformatics Services Division
The Bioinformatics Services Division (BiSD) at UNC Charlotte provides a wide range of bioinformatics services for nutrition and obesity-related research. Located on the NC Research Campus in Kannapolis, their experienced team is adept at analyzing and interpreting the volumes of data produced by today’s genomic technologies. Whether you are just considering a new project and need some advice or you already have a pile of data that you need to make sense of, the BiSD can help you.
