Neurodevelopmental Bioinformatics Initiative logo


The Neurodevelopmental Bioinformatics Initiative (NBI) seeks to aid the UAB neuroscience community in the design and analysis of high-throughput genomic studies to advance Civitan's mission to expand our knowledge of neurodevelopmental and intellectual disabilities.

To accomplish our mission in an accurate and time efficient manner, the NBI utilizes UAB’s High Performance Computer (HPC) cluster to perform all computationally intensive jobs. Importantly, to ensure that proper methods are applied throughout a project, the NBI aims to assist investigators from the early stages of an experiment to completion.
