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, and to build a strong community of bioinformaticians within SLU. Our staff is located on the 3 SLU campuses in Ultuna, Umeå and Alnarp. We want to join forces and coordinate teaching activities, common resources (hardware, software).
How do I get bioinformatics support from SLUBI?
You have several solutions:
We suggest that researchers contact SLUBI at an early stage to discuss the planned project, experimental design and what kind of support will be needed. Initial consultation is free. Subsequent SLUBI support and bioinformatics analyses cost 600 SEK/h.
Every Wednesday 13:00-14:00

Before the pandemic, SLUBI organised bioinformatics drop-in sessions at all 3 SLU campuses for answering various bioinformatics questions around a fika. Now the drop-in goes online: all campuses at the same place and time! Come and join us with your questions or take the opportunity to gather and exchange experiences with other bioinformaticians.
We are located at 3 SLU campuses, Alnarp, Ultuna and Umeå, and 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).
SLUBI computing resources:
We have computing resources at all campuses and will try to coordinate the management of these.
Computing resources for the Swedish research community:
We would like to remind that researchers can get computing resources for free by applying to SNIC (Uppmax and other clusters).
SLU has an agreement with Microsoft Azure for cloud computing (including price discounts). You can get more information by contacting the IT-support
