The Genomic Operations Division offers different support services to Qatar Genome Programme research projects. The division’s staff implement sound clinical bio-informatics strategies, in order to ensure that best practices are employed in informatics, bioinformatics for data analysis and clinical genome-wide sequencing data interpretation, laboratory research, bio-repository operations, and information technology security. Furthermore, the division is developing tools to integrate commonly used open source bio-informatics software applications, selecting pipelines for large scale omics data analysis as well as assessing tests and implementing best practices for omics data analysis.
The Genomic Operations Division establishes collaborations with a variety of local institutes, to fulfil QGPs vision, and assists investigators from the different research institutes in Qatar to also fulfill their research objectives, hence orchestrating genome related activities in the country.
