Bioinformatics Support

We provide services to meet the bioinformatics needs of UCSF students, staff, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty and to align with the goals of the NIH Big Data 2 Knowledge initiative including:

  • Locating and gaining access to biomedical data and software tools
  • Developing new methods for analyzing biomedical data
  • Training researchers for analyzing and for designing tools for analyzing biomedical data effectively

Why is it important to my work?

Bioinformatics provides researchers with efficient computer-based tools and methods for storing, retrieving and interpreting the vast quantities of data being generated by research.
