The Bioinformatics Center is located within the Department of Diabetes and Cancer Discovery Science at City of Hope and was established in 2014 to support the Human Islet Research Network (HIRN). The overall objective of the Bioinformatics Center is to advance type 1 diabetes knowledge generated through HIRN by providing the bioinformatics capability and infrastructure needed to support the Network. To achieve this goal, the Bioinformatics Center provides investigators with tools, processes, and methods to facilitate long term sharing, maintenance, and management of HIRN developed resources, including datasets, technologies, documents, and bioreagents. Collaboration and communication are cultivated through consultation and outreach activities.
