Analytic and Informatics Core

B. Todd Webb and Silviu-Alin Bacanu

The VCU-ARC Analytic and Informatics (AI) core will interact closely with all ARC cores, component labs, and projects in order to serve as a support network for the efficient assembly, annotation, analysis, and management of project and Center data. Specifically, the AI core will 1) efficiently assemble and manage internal (core, project, pilot) and external data to facilitate analytic interactions, a central feature of this P50 Center, 2) provide the computational and data-handling expertise required for data processing for multiple project datasets including exome and population sequence, 3) conduct statistical, bioinformatic, and gene network analysis within and 4) across species and 5) produce ranked gene lists for cross project investigation.
