We’d like to explain to you what we do

As experts in bioinformatics, we are interested in helping you to make most of your valuable resources. Whether this means improving your bioIT pipelines, your team’s development process, your data management, providing training, optimising your experiment, bringing your research from samples to results, writing new or adapting existing (open source) software, or helping you select, deploy or maintain your computational infrastructure.

Server consulting & management

Thinking about setting up a new compute cluster for your omics analysis? Having trouble keeping your Linux systems up to date? Let us help! We have several years of experience in design and maintenance of small to medium sized compute/storage clusters for research use.


Improving people's skills and knowledge is one of our biggest passions. Scientific software development? Programming skills? Reproducible research? Linux? We teach it!

Reproducible research

It is not uncommon that people spend millions of euros on experimental, functional, and clinical follow-up of some findings only to discover that they are chasing false-positives which resulted from e.g. a bug in the statistical quality control procedure. And we all know that having original work published in Science or Nature does not guarantee that reported results are reproducible. We can help you with establishing reproducible research pipelines before you invest follow-up of some previous (external) work.

Scientific software development

Modern science is nowhere without software. We develop new solutions or tailor existing ones to your needs. Keywords are free/open source software, R, Shiny, C++, Python.

Scientific research

Science lies at the heart of PolyOmica. For example, we have been involved in two omics-related EU FP7 projects and a EU-funded Horizon 2020 training network. For private customers we offer various solutions ranging from “you bring the samples, we will report the findings” to advice on how improve their experiments or analyses.

Process consulting

In any bigger research project, leadership faces a number of questions related to its (strategic) organisation. With more than a decade of experience in organising research in a wide range of settings, we are there to help you to achieve your goals.

Case study: The “Linux for scientists” course

Basic Linux command line skills are essential for researchers working in omics science and other fields revolving around big data. In collaboration with the Genetic Epidemiology group of the Erasmus University Medical Centre in Rotterdam, NL, we developed a course called “Linux for scientists” which has been running since 2011. Linux command line skills are […]
