Core Facilities & ServicesBiostatistics/ Bioinformatics

Biostatistics/ Bioinformatics

The mission of the Biostatistics/Bioinformatics Unit is to conduct collaborative research and to provide consultation and quantitative research resources to all IRB Barcelona research groups.

We assist scientists by providing both short and long-term consultancy services in the following areas:

  • Experimental design: sample size, study design, planning of statistical methodology
  • Data analysis: clinical or biomedical databases, genomics data
  • Assistance with statistical methodology in own or others’ research
  • Software: help in using software, develop software to meet special data analysis or study design needs

The facility conducts methodological research and develops resources in all of the above-mentioned areas.
