Cancer Informatics Program

The integration of our knowledge of the cancer genome and epigenome are providing new and tangible links that are revealing new insights into the development of tumours and patient treatment. However, these tests alone are not sufficient to yield improvements in therapy -- they require robust computing power to analyze, manage and make the genomic information comprehensible for patient outcome prediction and treatment selection. Bioinformatics is the application of computer science and information technology to the field of biology and medicine.
