Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Sciences
The Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (iQBS) was established in July of 2010 to develop, advance, and support interdisciplinary education, research, and infrastructure in the quantitative biomedical sciences, including bioengineering, bioinformatics, biophysics, biostatistics, computational biology, epidemiology, mathematical biology and related areas. As a partner to SYNERGY, iQBS will focus on important problems at the interface between informatics and clinical and translational sciences.
iQBS components supporting SYNERGY research through iQBS include:
- The Bioinformatics Shared Resource provides bioinformatics support and services to biomedical researchers in the Dartmouth community.
- DISCOVERY, the Dartmouth Initiative for SuperComputing Ventures in Education and Research, provides shared high-performance computing services with more than 1000 processors.
- Bioinformatics Visualization Lab (BVL) provides infrastructure and expertise in visualization and visual analytics to foster collaboration and scientific discovery. The BVL has established an immersive 3D visualization wall to allow investigators to be immersed in their research data. In addition, the BVL have developed novel 3D visualization tools by harnessing the power of 3D video game engines such as Unity 3D.
