Rhode Island INBRE Molecular Informatics Core (MIC)

Welcome to the Rhode Island INBRE Molecular Informatics Core

An NIH Data Sciences Core for Biomedical Research

Who We Are

Welcome to the Rhode Island INBRE Molecular Informatics Core (formerly the RI-INBRE Bioinformatics Core and URI Genomics and Sequence Core).  We are an NIH-funded core facility that serves Rhode Island institutions requiring sequencing, bioinformatics or data science services.

The goals of the MIC are as follows:

  • To provide sequencing, bioinformatics and data science support for INBRE and non-INBRE researchers
  • To facilitate access to computational and software resources for INBRE network institutions, particularly for primarily undergraduate institutions
  • To provide training opportunities for students and faculty in data science
  • To maintain a professional network with other core and user facilities in Rhode Island and beyond to maximize resources available to our users
  • To utilize novel technologies such as virtual/augmented reality for use in teaching and research

If you utilize the core services, you must follow our data sharing and public access policies.

Please fill out our sequencing needs survey!
We are evaluating current and future sequencing needs with the goal of buying a new next-gen sequencer for use in environmental and biomedical applications. Your input will help us decide which machine best fits your needs. Please scan the QR code below or visit https://forms.gle/UpPEhJHcT2HAE2n66. Thank you!
