Welcome to the Bioinformatics and Analytics Research Collaborative (BARC)
Open to all, focused on unmet need
Join the UNC Program for Precision Medicine in Health Care (PPMH) for Machine Learning & Precision Analytics, a free virtual mini-symposium from 1-3pm on Wednesday April 14. Presenters will explore information sources, data science tools that use the information, and the application of the resulting findings to health care. Another theme will be sources … Continued
We are honored to be a part of this study that recently got published in the journal Nature. The paper is about human lung-only mice (LoM) to demonstrate efficient in vivo replication of all recently emerged human corona viruses (SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2) and two highly relevant endogenous pre-pandemic SARS-like bat coronaviruses. Here is our … Continued
The Bioinformatics and Analytics Research Collaborative (BARC) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is a multi disciplinary center that aims to provide bioinformatics expertise and analysis to researchers across the university and beyond for high throughput data. We analyze, visualize, interpret, and manage big data while also offering custom solutions to fit our researchers’ needs. Additionally, the center strives to educate researchers on current tools and techniques, foster a collaborative environment by hosting workshops, working groups, and seminars, and improve existing tools and/or invent new tools and algorithms.
How We Work
We offer a free initial consultation during which we discuss the client’s project and how to ensure they are able to maximize the information that they learn. Afterwards, depending on the scale of the project we provide services by the hours or staff for grant for projects longer than six months. Each project is assigned to a project coordinator and bioinformaticist. The project coordinator is the point of contact for the client and is responsible for updating them on the status of their project.
