Bioinformatics at the Core
Very large amounts of data are generated and received every day by the Sequencing and Genotyping Core. Our Integrated Genetic Database (IGDB©) stores and manages sequences, genotypes, phenotypes, pedigrees, genetic maps, locus information, and other genetic data. Scientists in the UCLA Department of Human Genetics have developed novel methods to handle these large data sets with regard to collection, cleaning, management, archiving, integration, security, presentation, and dissemination.
New Bioinformatic Methodology is also being developed at the Core to further advance genetic research. One example is our Genotype Data Merging Software:
