databases to integrate diverse data sets
generated by the
Scientific Cores and Participating Investigators
of the Consortium as well as data sets from other public databases. In addition to acquiring
and disseminating Consortium related information, Core B will develop bioinformatics tools
for mining and prediction.
Develop statistical analysis, data mining and other bioinformatics tools to
construct predictive models based on the diverse data sets ranging from molecular level to the
physiology associated with GBP-carbohydrate interactions.
