The Cancer Bioinformatics Core provides high quality; custom bioinformatics and statistical genetic analysis support services and solutions to basic science, clinical and translational researchers. We develop and apply statistically rigorous solutions for the design of studies, analysis and mining a wide variety of "omics" and other biological data, and integration of these data with clinical information to facilitate translation of genomic discoveries to the bedside and to accelerate the realization of genomic and personalized medicine in cancer. We integrate the research, service and education missions of UMMC. The core is equipped with laptops, work stations, LINUX cluster, mass storage for database and data mining application, graphics workstations for visualization and popular bioinformatics and genomics software packages. The services provided are on a cost-recovery basis.
All the services are provided on a fee-for-service and collaborative research funding mechanisms. All fee-for-service must be agreed upon at the start of the project and must be paid for upon completion. Should the investigator chose to withdraw or terminate the project, hourly fees will apply. Collaborative grant funding will be agreed upon during grant application or negotiated if the grant is funded and on-going, and will be assessed on a continuous basis as agreed by the parties. Both payment mechanisms will include labor and computing costs. A 30-minute free service will be provided to each investigator for each project at first visit to assess the investigator's needs and the project. All costs will be assessed on a case by case.
