Bioinformatics Shared Resource

A key mission of the Bioinformatics Shared Resource is to provide state-of-art bioinformatics assistance for the design, analysis, and interpretation of genomics, proteomics, and other high-resolution, high-throughput based studies for better understanding of cancer biology, thereby facilitating translation of cancer omics discoveries to cancer treatment.

Services of the Bioinformatics Shared Resource include directing the design of high-throughput experiments, raw omics data processing, data analysis and interpretation, data mining and integration, assistance in the design and deployment of appropriate informatics infrastructure for data sharing and management, reviewing and preparing grants and manuscripts, software evaluation, new method and database development, and education and training. The bioinformatics expertise provided by the resource personnel ensures that the yield of useful information from the scientific studies conducted at RPCI is maximized while costs are minimized.

The Bioinformatics Shared Resource and the Biostatistics Shared Resource coordinate service and support activities through regular planning meetings, ensuring the CCSG investigators have full analytic coverage from clinical and preclinical biostatistics to statistical genetics and to bioinformatics, while receiving focused support on each discipline. In addition, the Resource has developed a synergistic working relationship with the Genomics, Clinical Data Network, Pathology Resource Network, and Data Bank and BioRepository Shared Resources and the Information Technology department to ensure coordination of experiment and analytics through the different phases of a cancer research project.
