About the CBIB

The Bordeaux Bioinformatics Center (CBiB) is a bioinformatics core facility that provides access to high-performance computing resources, data analysis and programming expertise. The resources serve scientists and private labs to fulfill the bioinformatics needs of their research in an efficient and cost-effective manner. We offer state-of-the-art technologies for working with clinical, translational, and basic science data – from acquisition and storage to analysis and sharing. Our resources are secure and standards-compliant. From a few samples to several tens of thousands, the Innovation Centre provides complete DNA, RNA, metabolomics and proteomics analysis services.

Le CBiB is a bioinformatics core facility recognized at the national level by the IBISA label and a component of the National Infrastructure distributed in bioinformatics, IFB (French Institute for Bioinformatics), selected within the framework of "Investissement d'avenir" since 2010. The IFB is the French node of the ESFRI ELIXIR European Infrastructure.

Bordeaux Bioinformatics Center (CBiB) is specialized in the development and application of methods at the interface of life sciences and computer science - statistics. It's main expertise is the collection, integration, cross-linking and analysis of "omics" data. The requirement to efficiently and reliably analyze large data volumes, leads us to develop « Big Data » analysis methods. In order to achieve this, the CBiB brings together relevant expertise in bioinformatics and computer science ; our Center is equipped with well-scaled computing and storage resources, while ensuring the continuity with the Regional, French and European infrastructures (Mésocentre de Calcul Aquitain - MCIA, Institut Français de Bioinformatique - IFB, ELIXIR).

Le CBiB is a partner of the MCIA (Mésocentre de Calcul Intensif Aquitain).

Le CBiB is linked to the reference research team "Computational Biology and Bioinformatics" of the IBGC (UMR CNRS 5095)

The CBiB - Bordeaux Bioinformatics Center has been approved by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance to the following Quality Management System Standards :  ISO 9001:2015 and NFX 50-900
