The Computational Bioanalytics Core Facility (CF-CBA), located at the Medical University Graz, is a group of statisticians and bioinformaticians who collaborate with medical research and life sciences investigators providing support and consulting, for planned and ongoing research projects.The facility currently focuses in microbiome research, biomarker research and variant classification. The mission of the core is to ensure that experimental designs and data analyses take advantage of robust, efficient methods that reflect 'best practices' in biostatistics and bioinformatics. Latest newsletter: December 2018 

The facility act as a point of contact between investigators and research groups in bioinformatics and biostatistics. The facility works in close relationship with the Biocomputing and Biomodeling community and complements their respective team with additional bioinformatics and biostatistics support for the analysis of large or complex data sets and for the development of new computational methods and data analysis pipelines. For detailed information, go to Biocomputing and Biomodelling Site.






Prospective Studies

In prospective studies the facility is usually involved from the first stages of planning through data collection and analysis to final evaluation.


General Consulting

We are also involved in supplying our expertise to investigators in the form of short-term consultation. Through this consulting service, biostatisticians and bioinformaticians provide advice on the design and analysis of research studies, which includes the analysis of data sets from studies already completed; help with the revision of papers for publication or interpretation of results reported by other investigators.


Support in Grant Preparation

The Facility works closely with investigators in preparation of grant and contract applications for submission to various funding agencies.
