Experts in delivering bioinformatics services

GB is a team of specialists who have a passion for all aspects of bioinformatics. Our analysts have a scientific background in either post-doc research or bioinformatics and the engineering team brings state-of-the-art technology from their diverse professional backgrounds.

GB is a private company based in the UK. It was founded in 2004 by Dr Liz Reynolds who identified the need for specialists who could deliver expert bioinformatics services to a diverse audience.

From its inception, GB has provided custom services which are not tied to particular products but instead focus on the challenge of making sense of scientific data according to each client’s specific requirements and organisation.

By having our people joined in one close team we can deliver fantastic solutions quickly in a wide variety of customer contexts. Our work is outcome focussed and we build strong working relationships with our clients, meeting a variety of their needs in one interaction.

Where we need to supplement our in-house expertise we reach out to our network of affiliates who bring world recognised domain specific knowledge.
