A statewide Bioinformatics Committee includes representatives from every PUI and community college. The Committee guides Core use and bioinformatics educational resources. Members have expertise in bioinformatics, bioinformatics education, or experience in Core facility operations. Institutional facilitators provide immediate, on-site, research-specific help to INBRE Developmental Research Project Investigators, Pilot Project Investigators, Student Research Mentors, and other faculty and students.

Additional bioinformatics consulting is available within the Idaho INBRE network. These resources are available to everyone, not just INBRE participants.
IBEST Genomics Resources Core (GRC) at the University of Idaho provides high throughput sequencing and sample prep, and has a staff of doctoral level bioinformatics scientists to help design and analyze experiments based on these data.
Molecular Research Core Facility at Idaho State University provides high end sequencing, and the associated bioinformatics and statistical consulting services
Biomolecular Research Center (BRC) at Boise State University represents a comprehensive collection of instrumentation and facilities ideal for the characterization of biomolecules and their role in a variety of biomedical and environmental processes.
