The CAB is an institutional shared resource, with the mission to provide state-of-the-art bioinformatics services to St. Jude investigators. The group maintains 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 world-class, open-access computational pipelines, and trains St. Jude investigators at all levels in standard analyses.
CAB advocates for an open-science culture to help cultivate a highly collaborative environment for scientific research. The group is credited with contributions to over 150 peer-reviewed publications from investigators across St. Jude and is 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.

We are learning cutting-edge technology all the time. It's not purely because it's our job or duty or responsibility to learn cutting-edge technology. I feel like people are passionate about that, and we really want to learn, understand and apply the technology to our research here.
