Welcome to SLUBI

The SLU Bioinformatics Infrastructure

Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet - Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

Our main goal is to provide support and training in Bioinformatics for SLU staff, as well as build a strong community of bioinformaticians within SLU. Our staff is located on the 3 campuses of Ultuna, Umeå and Alnarp. We want to join forces and coordinate teaching activities, common resources (hardware, software)


Bioinformatics support

How do I get bioinformatics support from SLUBI?

LTV faculty: Visit the PlantLink Bioinformatics support page for more information

NJ faculty: To get bioinformatics support at NJ faculty, please send and email to: slubi-nj@slu.se.

S faculty: Visit the Umeå Plant Science Centre Bioinformatics facility page

VH faculty: To get bioinformatics support at VH faculty, please send and email to: slubi-vh@slu.se.

We suggest that researchers contact SLUBI at an early stage of planning to discuss the planned project, experimental design and what kind of support that is needed. This consultation is for free. SLUBI support with any subsequent bioinformatics analyses costs 600 SEK/h.


Drop-in sessions

SLUBI organises Bioinformatics drop-in sessions at all 3 campuses for answering various Bioinformatics questions around a fika. It is also the opportunity for bioinformaticians to gather and exchange about their experiences.

In Ultuna

Every second Wednesday (even weeks) 13.00-14.00 in Ulls Hus - entrance floor. We wait for you with fika at the sofa’s corner (between butik Amigo and students computers).

In Umeå

Usually on Mondays 10.00-12.00 at UPSC bioinformatics facility (UPSC, KBC, room KB.K3). Please contact Nicolas (nicolas.delhomme@umu.se) before to make sure that there is a drop-in that day and/or to get access to the place (UmU house).

In Alnarp

Every second Wednesday (even weeks) 13.30-14.30 - Aquarium​ room in Horticum. These bioinformatics drop-in sessions are combined with the weekly R-help group.

About us

We are located at 3 SLU campuses: Alnarp, Ultuna and Umeå to provide support to researchers from all 4 faculties: LTV (Faculty of Landscape Architecture, Horticulture and Crop Production Science), NJ (Faculty of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences ), S (Faculty of Forest Sciences) and VH (Faculty of veterinary Medicine and Animal Science),
