The bioinformatics core aims to provide investigators within the PCBC access to genomics analysis tools, automated analysis pipelines, fully analyzed sequencing datasets and raw data for distinct iPS technologies and cell types (pluripotent and differentiated products). Our initial goal is to generate a cross-connectivity map across multiple omics data-types to reveal pluripotency differentiation pathways and intuitive navigations tools for these data (Synapse, ToppGene). Core members are available to help integrate this data into the analyses of PCBC investigators as well as support for associated analysis tools. We are further working on automated pipelines to analyze both PCBC omics datasets or PCBC investigator datasets in a fully automated manner from array/sequence directly to web navigatable graphs and spreadsheets.
