(e.g. diabetes, csf1r)
Based at the University of Michigan, NCIBI was founded in September 2005 as one of seven National Centers for Biomedical Computing (NCBC) in the NIH Roadmap. By integrating vast amounts of diverse, multi-scale data, the Center develops and disseminates tools for molecular biomedical research from a systems biology perspective. These bioinformatics resources help guide experiments and enable new insights derived from the analysis of complex diseases.
Organization and Strategy
NCIBI is composed of biomedical researchers, computational biologists, computer scientists, developers, and human-computer interaction specialists organized into seven major core functions. Working collaboratively, these interdisciplinary teams develop powerful, relevant tools that enable biomedical researchers to build computational and knowledge models of biological systems, validated through disease-specific studies.
NCIBI is engaged in:
- Contributing to the field of Integrated Biomedical Informatics.
- Mining Pubmed literature through natural language processing (BioNLP) and integrating data from many databases on protein interactions, compounds, other small molecules, biological concepts, and pathways
- Developing and implementing powerful, relevant bioinformatics tools for Integrated Biomedical Informatics.
- Testing tools and integrative approaches through partnerships with research projects focused on
Driving Biological Problems (DBPs) in systems biology.
- Building a significant and growing national user community.
