Biomedical Informatics Unit
Morehouse School of Medicine
The Biomedical Informatics Unit (BIU) at Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) focuses on integration of MSM and affiliated health information systems — electronic medical and personal health records, patient databases, and other research databases (basic, translational, clinical and population-based) — into an interpretable repository.
The unit also focuses on bioinformatics analysis that includes, but is not limited to identification of genetic biomarkers for tangible diagnostic applications, analysis of gene expression data gathered from multiplatform microarrays (Agilent, Affymetrix, etc) as well as provides analysis and consultation related to various expression profiling technologies which include RNA, miRNA, ChIP-on-Chip, and Antibody microarrays and post-hoc analysis of SNP and SAGE data.
In collaboration with the biostatistics unit at MSM, the BIU provides weekly data management consultations through studio sessions. The BIU also provides weekly training in REDCap for data collection and data management. Please find below a snapshot of services provided by the BIU.
