The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program was developed to provide researchers with powerful tools to analyze and understand the biological significance of a variety of data. Services include consulting, training, and hosting resources to help NIH researchers further their understanding of the molecular basis of disease. This data-centered program offers software for the analysis of high-throughput data such as next generation sequencing data, as well as software and knowledgebases to help in the interpretation of the results of these analyses, especially pathways and genetic variants. Additionally, the library provides three high-performance bioinformatics workspace for analysis of high-throughput data.
The program was established by an expert bioinformatics trainer, Dr. Medha Bhagwat. Learn more about bioinformatics work at NIH in the August 2009 issue, page 10, of The NIH Catalyst and from the November 2010 issue,page 3, of The NIH Catalyst
