Bioinformatics service for differential expression analysis of ribonucleic acid (RNA) sequencing data


A Spanish biotechnological institute offers its bioinformatics service for the differential expression analysis of ribonucleic acid (RNA) sequencing data. The bioinformatics procedure involves quality control, alignment to reference genome, calculation of read counts per gene and differential expression analysis. Results would be provided with detail explanation of the output. Both industrial and academic partners are sought for services agreements collaboration.

Partner sought

Biotech companies, academic research groups and any other organization interested in the study of transcriptomics (industrial microorganisms, model organisms and other) are sought in order to established a service agreement.


The organization is a Spanish biotechnological private non-profit research institute, founded in 1993, whose main activities are related to molecular biology and microbial biotechnology. The institution keeps close links with industrial research and innovation. The team covers several techniques and counts with a long experience in scientific research in European funded projects. The high-throughput ‘ribonucleic acid’ (RNA) sequencing (RNA-seq) allows the analysis of the transcriptome with great advantages over previous microarray technology, such as greater sensitivity, broader dynamic range and it can be applied to organisms without known genome sequence. Although these advantages, many laboratories might be reluctant to apply RNA-seq analyses to their investigations due to the complicated bioinformatics procedures that are needed to obtain significant data from the output of the sequencing machine. These reads need to be processed by scientifically valid bioinformatics procedures as follows: quality control of the sequences, mapping of the reads on the reference genome, calculation for each annotated gene, the read counts per gen, normalization and differential expression analysis using a thoroughly-proven and well-established procedure. The last two steps are key to obtain significant results of the experiment. The bioinformatics service can provide the researchers with the results of the differential expression analysis, so they can focus in extracting relevant knowledge for their experiments. The biotechnological institute is searching for academic and industrial partners in order to establish services agreements.

Advantages and innovations

The competitive advantage of the institute lies in the experience of the researchers that provide this service is based on the common use of bioinformatics procedures, molecular microbiology and also in omics techniques. The team are involved as principal investigators of national and European projects. This broader experience serves to offer a service focused on the needs of the researchers and companies.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
