CHIRP Bioinformatics


The CHIRP Bioinformatics Core computationally analyzes, interprets and manages genome sequencing and phenotypic data to support biomedical studies at The American Genome Center and the Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, Maryland. Our mission is to identify and characterize genomic alterations in patient specimens in order to enable precision medicine, such as characterizing the molecular etiology of disease, predicting disease risk and outcome, and discovering molecular subtypes of disease. We apply and develop computational methods for analyzing high throughput sequencing from the CHIRP sequencing core or from CHIRP affiliated investigators. Bioinformatics Core analysis spans primary level data analysis to biological hypothesis evaluation and exploration.
