The Bioinformatics Core Facility is located within the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center Laboratory for Genomics and Bioinformatics (LGB).  The focus of the original Oklahoma BRIN bioinformatics core was specific to the analysis and database management of microarray data.  The INBRE Bioinformatics Core, by contrast, is more flexible and diverse in its offerings.  The core facility provides genomics and informatics support to the OUHSC community, DNA sequence analysis and data cleanup, advice on taxonomic analysis of this DNA sequence data, in addition to supporting proposed microarray experiments.  The Bioinformatics Core acts as a central repository of data for submission to the national repository GEO.  The Core works directly with the newly hired bioinformatics faculty members in the OUHSC Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, to provide training and advice on the design of microarray experiments.  

The Core recently implemented the Oklahoma Bioinformatics User's Group (OBUG) ( that is used as a clearinghouse for bioinformatics exchanges in Oklahoma.  In addition, a quarterly newsletter and other information is available at
