  • Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core
  • Biostatistics and bioinformatics support of environmental health research requires increasingly skilled and specialized methods. High quality data and analysis contributes to the overall potential for high quality statistically sound research. The Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core is intended as a unifying force in the DISCOVER Center by engaging in interdisciplinary interactions, supporting multiple projects and databases, and providing biostatistics, bioinformatics, and database management support.

    Biostatistics support is in the areas of epidemiology, spatial modeling, and experimental design/analysis. The bioinformatics needs of the genetic epidemiology, functional genomics, and proteomics portions of the studies are met both directly by this Core and by leveraging resources of the Bioinformatics Core of the Center for Ecogenetics and Environmental Health (CEEH).
