The CAB is an institutional shared resource, with the mission to provide state of the art bioinformatics services to St. Jude investigators. We maintain the highest level of scientific rigor by carefully vetting and documenting all bioinformatics methods and pipelines. The CAB consults with investigators on optimal experimental design for informatics analysis, develops state-of-the-art, open-access computational pipelines, and trains St. Jude investigators at all levels in standard analyses.
CAB believes that “Discovery Leads to Cures” and advocates an open science culture to help cultivate a highly collaborative environment for scientific research. They are credited with contribution on over 150 peer-reviewed publications from investigators across St. Jude and one of the most frequently identified essential resources. CAB is tightly integrated with the Hartwell Center for Biotechnology, providing uniform, automated data-mapping and storage to facilitate downstream analysis. CAB maintains the common reference annotation and datasets shared across the institution. All methods developed by CAB are shared with the international bioinformatics community
The CAB is working FANTASTIC. We are really benefiting and value all the interactions…The collaboration and expertise has really been superb.
