Jump to navigationJump to search

The Informatics Resource Core provides advice to participating studies, sequencing centers and staff at the National Institutes of Health on the handling, processing and interpretation of large scale sequence data. The IRC will also be responsible for producing a joint analysis of available sequence data and aiding study investigators with informatics challenges when needed, particularly for cross study analyses. Long-term, a major goal of the Informatics Resource Center is to make study results easily accessible to a broad range of scientists.
