Bioinformatics and biostatistics as full service in biomedical research
The biostatistics unit conducts methodological research and data analysis in collaboration with a diverse set of research groups within and outside IRB Barcelona. We setup, benchmark and apply existing methodologies to data types including sequencing platforms, expression arrays, clinical and survival association, proteomics and many other specific technologies required by our collaborators. More importantly, we develop or adapt methods in order to extract all possible knowledge from every dataset. Our strong statistical background is supported by efficient programming implementations and close and continuous communication with the technical and biological groups generating the data. We emphasise the importance of our involvement in all projects from the experimental design up to the interpretation of results in order to achieve coherent and correct analyses.
