  • 1. Bioinformatics Core at AGERI Present and Future By Osama A. Momtaz Director Genetic Engineering Research Institute, Agricultural research Center, Ministry of Agriculture Egypt
  • 2. Establishment  The Agricultural Genetic Engineering Research Institute (AGERI) represents a vehicle within the agricultural arena for the transfer and application of genetic engineering technology.  The institute started in 1989 as a UNDP funded project called the National Agricultural Genetic Engineering Laboratory (NAGEL).
  • 3. Establishment Agricultural Genetic Engineering Research Institute (AGERI) represents a vehicle within the agricultural arena for the transfer and application of biotechnology and genetic engineering future sciences.
  • 4. FULL INTERNET SERVICES Provides the information technology infrastructure to support the research activities carried at AGERI http//www.ageri.sci.eg TECHNICAL SUPPORT COMPUTER FACILITIES BIOINFORMATICS SERVICES
  • 5. Bioinformatics Core A N e w E r a As a new era of biotechnology is emerging, a high-throughput instruments now is available to help decipher complex biological systems. It’s a cornerstone for any successful scientific organization dealing with biotechnology to have a good Bioinformatics core to decipher and interpretate information embedded in complex biological systems specially as it continue to grow.
  • 6. Vision We envision that our program will develop into a research-based and educational hub in AGERI as will as border region to provide bioinformatics and computational support for research community and perform training for bioinformatics, through our Bioinformatics Core.
  • 7. Scientific Development  AGERI has become the premier biotechnology research institution in Egypt by developing a highly trained research staff through: • international education and training programs • recruitment of top researchers from Egypt’s best universities • collaboration with international agricultural biotechnology firms 1990 2010 2020 Scientific Development Institutional Development  AGERI is now entering a new phase in its development focusing on establishing a new bioinformatics core to help decipher complex biological systems. Phase I Phase II
  • 8. Current situation “Hardware” Bioinformatics department now has:  Three servers hosting two webpage • AGERI web page: http://www.ageri.sce.eg • ARDF web page: http://www.ardf.sci.eg
  • 9. Current situation “Software”  Bioinformatics Department is using several type of software: E.g. R-pakage, Emboss, genepix, Hex, studan package, PERL, Diversity database, Bio-linux, mapmaker, WEKA, velvet, SPDBV.
  • 10. Current situation “Hardware”  The three server is also used to e.g. analyze microarray data, Statistical analysis for several experiment, clustering several type of experimental data.  We also have an 80 core cluster computer to deal with NGS data generated from our Solid sequencing facility.
  • 11. Using I&C Technology: providing platform  Any fields, really, but newer biological fields are more interesting Bioinformatics DNA computing (Bioprocessors)  Special fields of interest Genome Annotations … Molecular breeding simulation programs …  Target output: ICT show case, “infrastructure” for other research centers, and training
  • 12. Future Prespictive  To decipher and interpretate information embedded in complex biological systems bioinformatics department looking forward to have another cluster computer allocated only to data analysis.  Also bioinformatics department is looking forward to receive some essential soft ware to help in data analysis e.g. CLC genome work bench, Geneious.
