Weill Cornell Medical College Institute for Computational Biomedicine (ICB)

Faculty and Staff of the Institute for Computational Biomedicine are available for consultation and collaborative projects in all areas of bioinformatics. Specific translational bioinformatics support is offered through the biomedical informatics key function of the CTSC and focuses on the development of biomarker models from high-throughput datasets (e.g., measurements of gene expression, genetic polymorphisms, protein levels, or epigenetic modifications).

For questions about biomarker discovery or translational bioinformatics please contact Fabien Campagne, PhD

MSKCC Bioinformatics Core facility (BIC)

Personnel from the MSKCC Bioinformatics Core (BIC) perform scientific and technical consultations on a wide variety of bioinformatics topics. For example, topics have included, but are far from limited to, expression (mRNA and miRNA) microarray differential analyses, data mining of public and in-house gene expression data, normalization and segmentation of array CGH and SNP data, sequence assembly, mapping and variant detection, sequence data processing and extraction, selection of genes based on public annotations, and motif detection in DNA and protein sequences. BIC personnel have consistently focused on providing data processing and analysis services (either from computational tools developed internally or acquired externally), evaluating results for statistical significance and placing the data in context of the wider body of available biomedical data. There is a fee for these consultation services, which is based on an hourly rate or fee based on the amount and type of data. Price estimates are available after an initial consultation.

For more information about the MSKCC Bioinformatics Core, please contact Nicholas D. Socci, PhD.
