The UNC Lineberger Bioinformatics Core provides the infrastructure for management and analysis of large scale research projects, and promotes individual researchers to tap the ever-growing data generated by new cancer research technologies.
The mission of the bioinformatics core is to support and enhance UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center research activities by providing bioinformatics services and support.
The UNC Lineberger Bioinformatics Core is currently involved in multiple projects where the goal is integrated analysis of genomic data. Our role in these collaborations is to allow UNC Lineberger PIs to mine relevant information from their data, and leverage public data for their own experiments. We are also experienced in integrating clinical data with genomics for association testing. This work has led to development of clinically relevant diagnostic assays, their evaluation with public data, and validation in clinical trial cohorts.
