The Integrative Data Analysis Core (IDAC) will support projects in the Center with bioinformatics, data management and data integration. The Integrative Data Analysis Core will help the Center organize, store and manage experimental results and clinical data, will assist and educate Center investigators in reproducible data analysis techniques, and will produce integrative analyses across data produced by the Cornell Center and other ME/CFS Centers. The IDAC will deposit eligible data in the ME/CFS Data Management and Coordinating Center (DMCC) and harmonize data management and conventions between the Cornell Center and the DMCC.
The IDAC is led by Dr. Fabien Campagne, a senior bioinformatician whose laboratory specializes in high-throughput data analyses and development of analysis approaches. Dr. Campagne has previously developed a number of bioinformatics tools, including GobyWeb, a web application to aid with the analysis of high-throughput sequencing (HTS) data. He also is Associate Director of the Biomedical Informatics Core in the Weill Cornell Clinical Translational Science Center. He is assisted by Manuele Simi, a software engineer, as well as by a programmer and bioinformatics analyst.
