ABiMS works with research teams in the framework of the formal scientific collaboration.
ABiMS offer different services:
• A technical computing environment (Infrastructure as a Service - IAAS)
• Advice and expertise in the analysis of omics data
• Software engineering (information system, database, ...)
• Support for user-training
The training offer is based on the introduction of training modules environments (Linux, Cluster, etc.), use of tools (Galaxy, etc.) and languages (Perl, R, etc.), and understanding methods (RNA-seq, statistical analysis, etc.). ABiMS is also able to offer training in order for communities (e.g. Metabolomics) or projects (thematic School).
