Informatics & Biostatistics

Request CTRI Services


The CTRI supports software for managing clinical trials and observational studies, as well as a tool, CRIQueT, to query clinical records. These services are provided free of charge to CTRI members. For details, visit Databases and Clinical Records.


The Biostatistics faculty and staff advise and collaborate with CTRI researchers on biostatistics, bioinformatics, and epidemiology. In addition to common statistical tools, the faculty and staff have expertise in areas including reproducible research reporting, R Bioconductor, and high-performance computing. For details, visit Biostatistics.

Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics

The Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CCBB) provides analysis in genomics technologies including Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) and the interpretation of genomics data. We offer analysis and consultation on epigenomics, as well. Our long-term plans include expansion of our services to proteomics and metabolomics. For details, visit CCBB.
