Bioinformatics Core (BIC) - The
Bioinformatics Core is a combined informatics and bioinformatics core. Its primarily responsibilities are two-fold. The UCSD component of the BIC focuses
primarily on data management, which includes target tracking and management through the pipeline, acquiring and storing data and related information from
other Cores, and disseminating the information via web interfaces to all program participants and to the public. The Sanford-Burnham sub-Core of the BIC maintains
bioinformatics components consisting of target selection, modeling for MR, and functional annotation. The BIC is responsible for target selection, sample
tracking; information management, structure validation and deposition, and post-structural analysis. BIC coordinates with the other Cores to track and prepare
summary reports of the progress of the program and publications. Adam Godzik of the BIC is an integral member of the BIG that advises the PSI-2 SSTS on target selection.
