Welcome to the CBRG

The Computational Biology Research Group (CBRG) provides computing support for bioinformatics analysis at the University of Oxford. We have expertise in many aspects of bioinformatics (sequence analysis, microarrays, proteomics and integration). We especially encourage collaborations that require writing custom software, bioinformatics tools and databases.

An account with the CBRG has many benefits and gives automatic access to a large number of molecular biology computing packages and to numerous biological databases.

We are based at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology and at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine. Full details can be found on the contact details page.

Bioinformatics analysis tools online:

A wide range of bioinformatics programs are available online via EMBOSS Explorer.
You will need a molbiol username and password to use these tools.

Other web tools available include: BLAST, MIG, Mir-CRISPR, MASCOT and CRISPRscreen   (see full list).
