Vision and mission

Large and complex datasets being generated by OICR’s genomic, imaging and other cancer research programs and platforms require new computational and statistical research methods. The Informatics and Bio-computing Platform develops new algorithms, software, databases, visualization tools and other necessary components to interpret these datasets. OICR shares its resources with the Ontario cancer research community in its goal to accelerate cancer research and bring treatments to the clinic faster. The Platform closely collaborates with OICR’s Genome Technologies and Medicinal Chemistry Technology Platforms.
