Welcome to the new cross cutting theme of Informatics, established in 2014 with the full support of the Scientific Advisory Board. Research today is increasingly dependant on 'big data' and information systems. This new theme will support the delivery of core projects across the BRC to ensure that data gathered is accessible to all research groups and clinical teams and provides them with high quality information which will facilitate cross collaboration. The informatics theme will be divided into three key subthemes; Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Clinical Informatics.
