Montana INBRE Bioinformatics Core
The field of applied bioinformatics is developing at a pace not normally experienced in most biology labs, and the goal of the MT INBRE Bioinformatics Core is to help students and researchers keep up through the promotion of bioinformatics and computational literacy throughout the science curriculum and in the laboratory. This goal is being addressed through three main endeavors: (1) maintaining equipment and software for bioinformatic research, (2) promoting bioinformatics education, and (3) providing training and support to biologists implementing bioinformatics tools in their research. Many of these services are available to students and researchers throughout the Montana INBRE network, and details can found at the Bioinformatics Core Facility website.
The Bioinformatics Core Facility represents a fusion of efforts by several groups, including IGERT, COBRE (VMB and Chemistry), TBI, EPSCoR and science departments across the MSU campus. In collaboration with INBRE Bioinformatics Core PI Michael Franklin(Dept of Microbiology), the Bioinformatics Core Facility governing board includes Mark Young (EPSCoR, Dept of Plant Sciences), Robb Cramer (COBRE, Dept of Veterinary Molecular Biology), Ross Carlson (COBRE, TBI, Dept of Chemical & Biological Engineering), and Brian Bothner (COBRE, TBI, Dept of Chemistry & Biochemistry).
