Bioinformatics has become an indispensable component to support the interpretation of Big Data collected in a broad range of cancer research. The mission of the Bioinformatics Core at Massey Cancer Center is to provide a comprehensive, high-quality and cost-efficient bioinformatics service infrastructure to support Massey researchers in basic science, translational research and cancer control.

Through collaborative interactions with MCC members, the core supports the analysis of high-throughput multi-omics data with state-of-the-art bioinformatics algorithms and pipelines, facilitate the access and mining of public cancer datasets, support grant applications and provide consultation and training to cancer center members and trainees.
