Informatics is the study of application of computer and statistical techniques to the management of information.


The newly created Division of Informatics (Jan 2011) of the Dept of Pathology pursues computational research and tool development to integrate biomolecular and clinical data and advance personalized medicine. Accordingly, collaborative research is configured to involve computational statisticians and clinical researchers. The resources developed and maintained at the division to support this research range from novel integrative algorithms and the corresponding software libraries to novel integrative computational infrastructure.
