Biomedical Computing

Bioinformatics, genomics, biomedical data, and computational biology research support

BioMedical Computing supports basic science and clinical research through a collaboration of resources at the UVA School of Medicine and Health System. The resources include a wide range of computational infrastructure and research support in various service formats, as well as education and training in bioinformatics, clinical data analysis, and other related topics. Several teams and programs at the School of Medicine and Health System are constantly collaborating to provide the optimal solution for the research needs of faculty, researchers, and students at the University of Virginia. 

Research Computing

UVA Research Computing (RC) supports computational biomedical research by providing advanced cyberinfrastructure and expertise in data analysis at scale across Grounds. They offer services related to high performance computing, cloud architecture, scientific programming and big data solutions. See the Research Computing workshop page for a list of current offerings.

Research & Data Services @ Claude Moore Health Sciences Library

The team at Research and Data Services at the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library (RDAS @ HSL) helps guide researchers, students, and medical professionals in finding biomedical data, cleaning and wrangling the data, analyzing the data, and creating publication-ready visualizations through one-on-one consultations and workshops. See the RDAS @ HSL Workshops for a list of current course offerings.

Bioinformatics Core

The UVA Bioinformatics Core provides statistical support and bioinformatics data analysis that will help researchers gain the insight into the enormous amount of data typically generated from high-throughput microarray and next generation sequencing experiments. The majority of the core’s services utilize a combination of open-source and custom-built software running under flexible and scalable workflow management systems. The core boasts a long list of services (find about them here!), and also runs training classes and workshops to help researchers develop adequate skillsets in this area.

BioMedical Informatics Division in Department of Public Health Sciences

BioMedical Informatics Division in DPHS provides Consulting & Collaboration Support to assist researchers with study design, data analysis, statistical graphics, outcomes and comparative effectiveness research, and other multidisciplinary analytical services. Major services include (but are not limited to): biostatistical support; database development and data management; evaluation methods; qualitative research; community engagement strategies; and preparation of appropriate grant proposal and manuscript sections.

More details about the services and service request form can be found at this link.

User Training Classes and Workshops

In conjunction with training classes and workshop program by the main university library and Advanced Research Computing Services, we also offer various educational classes in numerous disciplines. For the list of classes we offer, please check out our “Education, Training and Outreach” page.
