The Canadian Bioinformatics Helpdesk is a free service from Compute Canada providing support for the national bioinformatics community.  Our aim is to deliver this support by connecting the community with bioinformatics experts from across the country — using our forum, training and education workshops, and even one-on-one sessions.  So, whether you’re a student, an analyst, or a researcher, the Helpdesk is the place to access solutions for a wide range of bioinformatics and sequencing challenges.

This site and related services are the result of a partnership between Compute Canada, the BC Genome Sciences Centre and the Canadian Centre for Computational Genomics. And it is from these organizations that we have assembled our team — from coast to coast.
