Bioinformatics Healthcare Informatics and Data Science Network of Delaware (BiND)

The goal of the Bioinformatics Healthcare Informatics and Data Science Network of Delaware (BiND) is to integrate bioinformatics and biostatistics resources across Delaware INBRE partner institutions to increase access to critical expertise and cyberinfrastructure, strengthening the statewide environment for performing informatically-enabled life science research and training.
The activities of BiND are guided by a steering committee composed of representatives from each Delaware INBRE partner institution.  Working Groups established in three areas of emphasis: Cyberinfrastructure, Education and Training, and Research provide forums for inter-institutional discussion and growth.
