The Bioinformatics and Computational Biology program, which supports the National Centers for Biomedical Computing, aims to develop novel, cutting-edge software and data management tools to effectively mine the vast wealth of biomedical data generated from sophisticated modern laboratory techniques and facilitate data sharing between researchers.
The Importance of Biomedical Informatics and the Impact of the National Centers for Biomedical Computing (NCBCs) featured in JAMIA
The March 2012 Issue of the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA) highlights the efforts of the centers participating in the NIH NCBC program. An editorial history of the NCBC program is provided by Dr. Jeremy Berg, former NIGMS Director.
