The Bioinformatics Shared Resource supports the research needs of Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) investigators with respect to experimental design, data integration, as well as data analysis of clinical, laboratory, and population-based studies utilizing high-throughput bioinformatics technologies. The mission is to advance cancer research and cancer treatment by providing an array of bioinformatics shared research and services to the institute community through collaboration. Our expertise lies in developing and utilizing state-of-the-art bioinformatics algorithms to design, analyze and integrate various voluminous “-omics” data for a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying human cancer initiation, progression and prognosis.
The Bioinformatics Shared Resource takes advantage of two major computing resources available.
First, each faculty and staff has a Dell Linux workstation.
The workstation is ideally for moderately compute-intensive bioinformatics projects.
Second, through collaboration with the Center for Computational Research at University at Buffalo, we have high-priority access to their Linux cluster with more than 2,000 processors.
This cluster is specifically designed for largely compute-intensive bioinformatics projects.
Our services are open to all investigators across Roswell Park Cancer Institute, and can be broadly classified into two types in term of service details:
Long-Term Collaboration is the collaboration on projects from inception through final manuscript submissions. For this we can provide assistance with the grant preparation, data analysis and manuscript preparation.
For long term collaborations the bioinformatics faculty or staff will be included on the grant application with percent effort funding appropriate to their project responsibilities.
Short-Term Consulting typically consists of assistance with data analysis and manuscript preparation.
Large analytic projects will typically require funding support for the staff providing assistance.
We provide research, resource and software support for investigators using bioinformatics technologies in cancer research.
At the research level, we collaborate on research projects that require bioinformatics expertise in grant development, data analysis and manuscript preparation.
At the resource level, we provide consultation on access and usage of public bioinformatics analysis tools and databases.
At the software level, we develop and modify bioinformatics software pipelines for customized solutions.
