The Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core is a shared departmental resource for biostatistics and bioinformatics consulting and support ranging from project design to data analysis. It is a critical component of the research infrastructure in the Department of Neuroscience & Regenerative Medicine.

Statistical Analysis 

  •  Statistical design of biomedical, translational and clinical studies, including sample size and power analysis
  • Testing of assumptions of statistical tests
  • Applying regression-based models to identify factors associated with disease outcomes.
  • Development of novel statistical methods and models: Monte Carlo methods and simulations, the Cross-Entropy method, resampling methods, and mixed-effects models

Bioinformatics Analysis 

  • RNA-seq,
  • microarray
  • ChIP-seq
  • DNA methylation
  • Whole genome sequencing
