Wyoming INBRE Data Science Core



We are the Data Science Core (formerly Bioinformatics Core) supported by the Wyoming INBRE grant at the University of Wyoming. Our mandate is to foster data science activities in the state. In this endeavor, we work at multiple institutions such as the seven Wyoming community colleges and the UW-Laramie and Casper campuses, however, Wyoming INBRE requires acknowledgements in any research/teaching products for which you received INBRE funding or support.

We offer a broad range of services to the Wyoming students and researchers in biomedical and biological sciences disciplines. This includes formal teaching, providing specific trainings for data analytical procedures and participating in research collaborations with faculty throughout the state. All of our services are completely free of charge.

Our Areas of Expertise:

  • Experimental design for nextgen sequencing projects
  • File Manipulation and Data Parsing
  • Ecological, Population and Conservation Genetics/Genomics Analysis
  • Sequence Alignment and Phylogenetic Reconstruction
  • RADseq, GBS, RNAseq Technologies to facilitate Genome Assembly, Genome Scans for Genetic Variation, Functional and Structure Annotation, Gene Family Evolution and Network Analysis
  • We can train you on Read QC, Demultiplexing, Quality Trimming and Performing Error Correction on Illumina and PacBio data sets.


Core contributions to the Wyoming research community fall in three major categories:

  1. Collaboration: Use our knowledge of informatics tools to aid in experimental design and data generation
  2. Training: Train investigators in the acquisition and usage of informatics tools and interacting with the Teton HPC cluster
  3. Support: Develop novel workflows for the analysis of ecological and evolutionary data
