Biostatistics & Bioinformatics Core
The mission of the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core (BBC) is to provide the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center with cutting edge, state of the art biostatistical and computational expertise for cancer research. The BBC works towards providing seamless services through direct research collaborations and consultations in the areas of biostatistics, bioinformatics, and information technology.
The BBC was established in 2009 and is currently one of the shared resources under the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core (BBC) provides the investigators at UM Sylvester with cutting edge, state of the art biostatistical, bioinformatics, and computational expertise for cancer research. Members of the BBC contribute to all phases of research, including statistical study design, data analysis, interpretation of quantitative findings, and comprehensive high throughput genomic data analysis. They are identified as co-investigators or study biostatisticians and their contributions are recognized by co-authorship of presentations and publications. The Core is also actively involved in teaching and training of investigators, fellows and research staff in the use of cutting edge software systems and analysis methods. The core consists of three components, namely, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, and Information Technology.
