CHAPEL HILL, NC, March 11, 2008 – A new collaboration between melanoma researchers in the School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI), and researchers from the departments of computer science, epidemiology, biostatistics, and statistics and operations research at UNC Chapel Hill aims to use image [...]
Even though the buzz about eScience often focuses on massive hardware, user interfaces, storage capacity and other technical issues, in the end, the ability of eScience to serve the needs of research teams boils down to people: the ability of infrastructure builders to communicate with scientific communities and understand their needs and the realities [...]
The end results of research in genetics, proteomics and other fields that use bioinformatics are often dramatic: discoveries that reveal the causes of cancer or that lead to new drugs and treatments. But the research process can be redundant, time consuming and tedious. Enter workflows, technology that automates many redundant processes used in analyzing biological [...]
Faculty, staff, students and others with an interest in biology are invited to feed their minds—as well as their stomachs—at the Renaissance Computing Institute’s Renaissance Bistro, an information session focusing on the biological sciences.
The Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) will host a panel discussion on the data needs of the bioinformatics and genetics communities at research universities in the Triangle from 2:30 – 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26 at the Friday Center, 100 Friday Center Drive, Chapel Hill.
Scientists studying the genetic changes in skin tissue linked to a life-threatening skin cancer, or melanoma, will soon have new analysis tools and more research data at their fingertips thanks to a collaboration with the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI), a multidisciplinary institute affiliated with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke and North [...]
