The Biomedical Research Computing core facility provides research opportunities and support for students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty interested in the use of computational approaches to solving biological problems. Our goal is to lower as much as possible the threshold to enter the -omics area of the life sciences. To achieve this goal, we have established a much-in-demand Bioinformatics Consulting Group, introduced a cutting-edge training program for graduate students and postdocs, and developed many popular networking opportunities in addition to high-performance computing and administrative support.
