The Computational Biology Shared Resource makes analysis of microarray, high-throughput sequencing and mass-spectrometry based platforms broadly available to researchers across the Center through expertise in data analysis, consulting, training and technology development.  The following coordinated initiatives are provided at no cost* to Center faculty:

1.    Consulting – An email help-desk is staffed for users to submit questions, request meetings to discuss specific analysis strategies, and solicit advice on experiment design & novel genomics & proteomics applications for planned research studies.
2.    Data Analysis – Expertise is provided in the areas of microarray, high-throughput DNA sequencing, genomics, & proteomics data, & for combining data and bioinformatics resources.
3.    Training – Classes and hands-on computing labs are offered to introduce genomics and proteomics techniques and analysis tools to a wide range of Center staff and affiliates.  Past courses have included proteomics data analysis, microarray data analysis, and high performance computing.  Future courses will be developed based on expressed interests and needs.  
4.    Technology Development –New technological needs are identified from emerging experiments at the Center.  Faculty with specific needs for new computational technologies can request developments through the resource; priority is given to those technologies that will be used by multiple Center Faculty.

  *Ongoing projects requiring substantial resources can be arranged on an as needed basis.
