Genomics Bioinformatics (GBIRG)


The goals of the Genomics Bioinformatics Research Group (GBIRG) are:

  1. To investigate questions of interest to all genomics focused bioinformatics and bio-IT cores, by creating surveys of bioinformatics and bio-IT core management and funding models, conducting studies of computational biology analysis tools and data management methods issues, and identifying best practices.
  2. To explore collaborative bioinformatics and bio-IT support for ABRF genomics focused research group studies.
