Shared Resources



Bioinformatics (BISR)


To support the implementation of bioinformatics resources for cancer research at Dartmouth. Our goal is to provide expert consultation and collaboration for research projects of NCCC members. The Bioinformatics Shared Resource also strives to educate members of the community in different aspects of computational biology by providing regular workshops and seminars.

We provide a wide range of different services including applied bioinformatics and data mining, computer programming and software engineering, database development and programming, and high-performance computing and systems administration. We look forward to helping you plan, execute, analyze, and interpret your next biomedical research study.
