Services

BioData.pt provides three main categories of services:

  • (Bio)Data Science services, which include consulting in advanced data management and analysis, as well as technical solutions such as tools and repositories.
  • Computing services, which include the provision of virtual machines and access to our hardware infrastructure.
  • Training services in bioinformatics and data management, spearheaded by the GTPB training programme.

In the quality of Portuguese ELIXIR node, some of the services and resources BioData.pt maintains and provides are considered Node Services.

Additionally, BioData.pt also endorses a number of Community Services, registered in the ELIXIR bio.tools registry, some of which are maintained by the infrastructure, and others by other national researchers.


PHYLOViZ

PHYLOViZ allows phylogenetic inference and data visualization for large datasets of sequence based typing methods, including Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) and whole genome/core genome Multilocus Sequence Typing (wg/cgMLST) analysis.

PHYLOViZ is available as both a standalone tool and also as Web application/service.

PHYLOViZ is freely available at http://www.phyloviz.net, licensed under GPLv3.

GTPB

The GTPB runs face-to-face Bioinformatics Training Courses regularly at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência since 1999. Up to now, more than 4500 course participants have acquired practical skills that they can use with a high degree independence. The Programme consists in a series of short, intensive hands-on courses delivered and fully documented in English. The design of the courses is based on sets of carefully chosen exercises, flanked by short lectures and participative interaction sessions.

Plant Experimental Assay Ontology (PEAO)

The Plant domain has been the subject of several attempts to structure and formally define terms and corresponding relations, such as their anatomical features, developmental stages, and the application of particular experimental procedures to a biological problem. However, a focus on experimental assays in order to describe the whole experimental procedure, to the best of our knowledge, has only been attempted in the context of a very general description based on classical views of the scientific method.
