Center for Bioinformatics & Molecular Biostatics

Led by Dr. Mark Segal with faculty in the department and in other UCSF research groups and affiliates, the Center for Bioinformatics & Molecular Biostatics aims to:

  • Provide data, analytic and statistical support to UCSF investigators engaged in molecular biologic, genomic and genetics research projects.
  • Devise, implement and disseminate novel statistical methodologies appropriate to such studies.
  • Forge links and collaborations with existing and emerging UCSF entities engaged in such endeavors.
  • Aid training in the application and interpretation of these data analytic techniques in concert with existing UCSF courses such as those offered under the Program in Quantitative Biology and Biological and Medical Informatics Graduate Program.

The center also offers collaborative support for molecular biologic and genetics projects including assistance with study design, grant preparation and data analysis.
